As Governor Walker Helps Bring Foxconn to Wisconsin, Democrats Play Politics
[Madison, WI]—Thanks to the bold leadership of Governor Scott Walker and Republican legislators, Foxconn Technology Group and its investment are set to transform Wisconsin’s economy, creating tens of thousands good-paying, family-supporting jobs. Democrats in Wisconsin were once in favor of action to create these very types of jobs, before they decided to start playing politics with Foxconn.
In their words vs. their actions, check out where Democrats stand on family-supporting jobs – the kind that Foxconn is promising to bring:

Andy Gronik, Democratic Candidate for Governor
