Would Rather Play Politics Than Support Historic Jobs Investment for Hard-Working Wisconsinites
[Madison, WI]— Since the announcement that Foxconn Technology Group plans to create 13,000 jobs in Wisconsin, Democrats have been scurrying to find a way to root against Wisconsin’s comeback. Despite support form some in the party, like Democrat Minority Leader Peter Barca who said it “…has the potential to make an enormous impact economically on the region,” Democrat recruits for governor would rather play politics and earn political points with the Left—even if it means opposing tens of thousands of new jobs for hard-working Wisconsin families.
“It’s telling that Democrat recruits for governor are tripping over themselves trying to find a reason to be opposed to this transformative investment,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “It’s pathetic to see these candidates struggle trying to find ways to continue rooting against Wisconsin’s comeback when hard-working families across the state are celebrating this historic announcement.
Democrat Recruits for Governor are Rooting Against Jobs for Hard-Working Wisconsinites:
- Tony Evers’ Fundraising Appeal Against the Announcement: “That’s outrageous.” After, Evers referred to the deal as a “talking point” to WisPolitics.
- Mike McCabe on Facebook: “We need to focus on empowering 5 million people in this state rather than feeding the rich in hopes they’ll work some magic for the rest of the population. Gotta move from #GoldenShowerEconomics…”
- Kathleen Vinehout to WisPolitics: “All of the environmental and economic concerns must be taken into consideration…”
