Madison — On Saturday, Governor Scott Walker laid out his new campaign agenda to help Wisconsin win the 21st century and also called on conservatives to fight to protect the bold reforms that put Wisconsin on the right track.
With a rousing speech at the Republican Party of Wisconsin State Convention this past weekend, Gov. Walker rallied his grassroots army of supporters to defend the success we’ve had so far in sparking Wisconsin’s comeback. The governor emphasized that all those reforms could be gone if a Democrat wins the governorship. Under Gov. Walker’s leadership, Wisconsin is working and moving forward – now, the governor is laying out how Wisconsin can win the 21st century.
Check out what’s in the news:
From Wisconsin State Journal: “In a speech to the Republican Party of Wisconsin convention, Walker also plans to lay the foundation for a third-term agenda, with promises of more large tax cuts and a major reduction in opioid addiction, according to excerpts of his speech released Friday by his campaign.”
From The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “But Walker won’t just look back as he lays ‘out the foundation of our plan for the next four years. We call it Wisconsin Wins the 21st Century.’ He’ll say he wants Wisconsin to be a great place for millennials and retirees, and touch on education, health care, employment and taxes.”
From The Cap Times: “’This election is going to be tougher than any we’ve faced so far — and the consequences are greater than ever,’ Walker said. ‘We don’t want to go back to the days of double-digit tax increases, billion-dollar budget deficits and record job loss. That’s what it was like when Democrats last controlled state government.’”
From Wisconsin Public Radio: “’Walker used his speech to warn GOP voters of the importance of the fall election in light of recent surprise Democratic victories in the state and across the country. ‘We need to wake up,’ he said. ‘This election is going to be tougher than any we’ve faced so far and the consequences are greater than ever.’”
