The state faces a major budget crisis, and has gone 3 weeks past the June 30th budget deadline. Instead of negotiating a deal, Governor Scott Walker is busy playing Iowa politics yet again.
Today, Walker took time away from negotiating table to endorse Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds in her primary. Walker was a frequent visitor to Iowa during his failed 71-day-long presidential campaign.
“After his failed presidential campaign last year, Governor Walker is once again abandoning his job in Wisconsin for politics in Iowa,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “Meanwhile, Wisconsin remains without a budget and transportation projects remain unfunded. Scott Walker should do his job and solve the budget crisis, instead of following the glimmering lights of national politics.”
