ICYMI: Gov. Walker Fights Back Against Outside Special Interests Meddling in Wisconsin
[Madison, Wis.] – Even as Gov. Walker’s agenda has Wisconsin working, outside special interests – led by Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder – are targeting our state.
Gov. Walker’s bold reforms have achieved real, positive results for hard-working families across Wisconsin. Under his leadership, we’ve set all-time lows for unemployment, made historic investments in education, worked to stabilize Wisconsin’s health care, taken action to keep our children safe at school and returned tax dollars to the hard-working taxpayers. Wisconsin is working, and Gov. Walker is moving the state forward.

Now, we have a bigger fight than ever – led by none other than President Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, with liberal special interests preparing to target our state like never before.
When I became Governor of Wisconsin, we inherited a $3.6 billion deficit, sky-high unemployment, and record job loss. For years, big government special interests were in charge and driving our state into the ground. We knew it would take bold action to change course, and that’s exactly what we did – now, Wisconsin is working.
It wasn’t easy – liberal union bosses came out in force, fighting against us every step of the way – and we learned what the angry Left looks like here in Wisconsin.
Many of those same angry liberals are out in force again, but this year is different – their anger is unprecedented, and they are motivated.
Already, the outside special interests are lining up to target us. Big government unions like the SEIU, AFL-CIO, and AFSCME, liberal extremists like George Soros and Tom Steyer, and far-Left groups like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood are laying the groundwork for a fight unlike anything we’ve ever seen in Wisconsin. They are pledging to spend tens of millions of dollars to rollback our nationally-leading reforms and we’re expecting this will be the most expensive cycle in state history. …
