Walker campaign: Walker begins closing argument with statewide TV ad telling Wisconsin voters “let’s finish what we started”
Governor highlights Wisconsin’s turnaround and agenda to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come
[Madison, Wis.] – Scott Walker began his closing argument in a new statewide TV ad launched today, highlighting Wisconsin’s turnaround and telling voters it’s time to “finish what we started” and keep Wisconsin working for generations to come. The governor appears straight to camera and talks about the results he’s delivered by showing real leadership before asking the people of Wisconsin for their vote.
During his time as governor, Scott Walker has helped turn Wisconsin around with reforms that have led to unemployment at or below 3 percent for eight straight months, more people working this year than ever before, and more than $8 billion in tax cuts while funding our priorities. While the governor’s agenda will mean more jobs and higher wages, a Tony Evers victory would mean more spending and higher taxes.
The ad, entitled “Finish What We Started,” can be viewed here, and a transcript is below.
Scott Walker: We’ve come a long way together.
More people are working in Wisconsin than ever before, and that means more opportunities for our graduates to stay here.
Because our economy is strong, we lowered taxes and increased funding for education, worker training, infrastructure and health care.
With your support, we’ll expand opportunities for Wisconsin workers, help our seniors stay in their homes, and help lower college debt.
Let’s finish what we started, and keep Wisconsin working for generations to come.
I ask for your vote.
The spot will run on television as well as on a range of online and social media platforms. It is the latest ad the Walker campaign is running on the governor’s strong record of getting positive things done and his plans for more bold reform to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come – in contrast to Tony Evers’ plans to take us backward with empty promises and higher taxes.
