Gov. Walker stumps for local Republicans

Scott Walker in Appleton 3-9-2016

BRILLION, Wis. (WBAY) – Governor Scott Walker was in Northeast Wisconsin Monday as part of a busy week of plans campaigning for Republicans across the state.

In Brillion to tour an expansion at Professional Plating Inc, the Governor took the opportunity to stump for Appleton attorney and Outagamie County Republican Party Chair Ron Tusler.  The Governor thanked Tusler for being willing to serve his state in the assembly, saying it would be good to have another voice of reason in the capital.

Ron Tusler is just one of the many republican candidates the Governor says he will be campaigning for over the next eight days.

According to Governor Walker, “Going to connect tonight with Mike Gallagher and support him and then other legislative candidates the next couple of days.  I’ll be with, tomorrow night, both Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then most of the rest of the weekend with Ron Johnson, helping make the case that a manufacturer like Ron Johnson is a better choice than a senator for 18 years, Senator Feingold.”

With the presidential race tightening, the Governor who had been a critic of Donald Trump during the presidential primary, when he was still a candidate, sees the appeal Donald Trump has to voters today saying, “There’s a lot of people around the state who feel like the federal government is still disconnected from them, that want someone to shake things up, certainly that’s what you get with the top of the ticket.”

One thing the Governor is sure of, he doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton is fit to be president, adding, “We found she lied about her emails, putting our national security at risk. She lied about Benghazi to the victims of the tragic killings there and she’s not told us the truth about all the connections between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation. It’s raised a lot of concerns, and so people are still looking for who to vote for in that election.”
