Governor Walker has a bold agenda to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come, while Tony Evers would take Wisconsin backward
[Madison, WI]— Because of Governor Walker’s bold leadership, wages are higher, property and income taxes are lower now than in 2010, there are more people working this year than ever before, and unemployment has been at or below 3 percent for eight straight months. In contrast, Tony Evers would take Wisconsin backward with more spending and higher income, property, and gas taxes – even saying an increase in the gas tax of up to $1 per gallon is “on the table.”
“This race is a clear contrast between Governor Walker, who has delivered on his promises to Wisconsin voters with more jobs and higher wages, and Tony Evers who will raise taxes on hard working Wisconsin families and job creators,” said Mark Morgan, Executive Director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Tony Evers will take Wisconsin backward to the days of high unemployment and higher taxes. Wisconsin cannot afford Tony Evers.”
