The Republican Governors Association congratulates Governor-elect Scott Walker on his election as governor of Wisconsin. Scott Walker succeeds Democratic governor Jim Doyle. The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Scott Walker’s victory spending a total of $5 million.
“Scott Walker had a clear message of bringing fiscal sanity to Wisconsin.” said RGA chairman Haley Barbour. “Wisconsin voters recognized that Scott is someone who not only talks the talk of fiscal responsibility, he walks the walk. That’s why he won and why he’ll be a great governor.”
The Republican Governors Association was a key investor in Scott Walker’s victory spending a total of $5 million on the race. The RGA ran a comprehensive campaign including TV and internet ads and direct mail. The series of ads were devastating to Tom Barrett as they outlined Barrett’s record of more taxes and less jobs and that he would be like a third term for Jim Doyle, only worse. All told, RGA ran 8 TV ads and sent 8 pieces of mail for absentee, early voting, and GOTV, totaling 2.9 million mail pieces.
