Madison, WI — Today, Tony Evers’ campaign released a new ad featuring Tony calling out Scott Walker for “educating” Wisconsinites about how dangerous Walker’s policies are for Wisconsin families. Under Walker’s leadership, health care costs have soared, public school funding has been slashed, and roads and bridges are crumbling. Walker’s lesson to Wisconsinites is clear: when it comes to helping working families, he’ll fail you every time.
“Scott Walker likes to call himself an ‘education governor,’ but the only lesson he’s taught Wisconsin is that he has no idea how to help families across our state,” said Evers campaign manager Maggie Gau. “Tony Evers knows that gutting education, threatening health care coverage, and letting our roads crumble are not ways to grow Wisconsin. It’s time for a change.”
Walker has spent the past eight weeks desperately trying to distract from his past eight years of failure for Wisconsin families. Just yesterday, he offered more empty political promises on both education and protections for people with pre-existing conditions that run up against his long record of putting the special interests before what’s best for Wisconsin.
Evers’ ad can be viewed here, and a full transcript is below.
“Sure He Has” Transcript:
Scott Walker says he’s been an education governor.
Sure he has.
Walker educated us on how to increase healthcare costs.
He also educated us that cuts to public schools hurt our kids.
He educated us that he’d rather play politics than fix our roads.
And Walker educated us that he has no clue on how to help Wisconsin families.
I don’t know about you folks, but I’ve had enough of Scott Walker’s education.
I’m Tony Evers, and it is time for a change.
