WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association issued the following statement on Governor Scott Walker’s re-election victory in Wisconsin:
“For the third time in four years, Wisconsin voters have rewarded bold leadership and the real results it yields; the state will continue to move forward under Governor Scott Walker,” said RGA Chairman Chris Christie. “Governor Walker is a doer; a true public servant who steps up to the plate, takes on the tough issues, and makes the hard decisions. He has done the things a good governor should do, and he will continue to take Wisconsin in the right direction in his second term. The Republican Governors Association is proud to congratulate Governor Walker on his re-election.”
The Republican Governors Association was a strong partner in Governor Walker’s re-election victory, spending over $8 million with our partners on paid media. The RGA ran six television ads in Wisconsin detailing Democrat Mary Burke’s record of raising taxes, wasteful spending, and lost jobs during her time in the failed Doyle administration; and why Burke was unfit to lead after it was revealed she plagiarized her campaign’s jobs plan.
