Madison – Governor Scott Walker’s campaign on Wednesday announced that it had collected more than 12,000 nomination signatures from all 72 Wisconsin counties – showing that the conservative grassroots army of supporters across the state is preparing to protect the governor’s reforms and re-elect both him and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in November.
“Hard-working families across the state are standing with Governor Walker and Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch and their strong record of results – including record-low unemployment, more people working than ever before, and historic investments in education,” said Joe Fadness, Walker’s Campaign Manager. “The strength of this organization is tested and unmatched, and the governor’s grassroots army is prepared to work each day until November 6 to ensure that Scott Walker can enact his agenda to help Wisconsin win the 21st century. The left may be angry, but our supporters are organized and optimistic about moving our state forward.”
