Madison, Wisconsin – The following is a statement from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Communications Director, Melanie Conklin.
“If Scott Walker released an honest video on his track record in Wisconsin, it would show his refusal to expand health care to all Wisconsinites, his rejecting federal money to improve broadband in rural Wisconsin, his wounding cuts to our public schools and his singular pursuit of serving the ultra-wealthy around the country over the majority of middle-class Wisconsin residents. Proof is in his tax giveaways to the rich, his extravagant credit-card state borrowing and his complete failure on his very own job-creation promises that were the centerpiece of his first campaign.
“Scott Walker’s political posing on a motorcycle is fine, but an accurate video would show him being jostled around on Wisconsin’s crumbling roads that are the fourth worst in the nation as he sped across a state line to a waiting jet to take him to his latest coastal fundraiser– ignoring Wisconsin as he pursues higher office for himself.
“His new white W logo stands for nothing but Walker himself, as he has always put his personal political pursuits far ahead of Wisconsin’s needs and interest.”
