One Wisconsin Now to Travel to Iowa as Gov. Walker Pursues Presidential Ambitions
Will Share ‘Walker Resume of Failure’
MADISON, WI - Gov. Scott Walker continues to travel the country in pursuit of his national political ambitions, instead of focusing on his job in Wisconsin. As he travels to Iowa to address the Polk County GOP on Thursday, May 23rd, One Wisconsin Now will also be making the trip to share the real Walker resume of failure with residents of the Hawkeye state.
One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross commented, “As he pursues his ambition for higher office Gov. Walker is spinning yarns of his Wisconsin ‘success’. But Scott Walker has one the worst job creation records in the nation and Wisconsin is rated dead last in short term job creation prospects, he enacted the biggest cuts to public education in state history and is now pushing a health care scheme that costs more to cover fewer people. The numbers don’t lie, the real Walker resume is a record of failure”
Joining One Wisconsin Now will be their partner organization Progress Iowa. “When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joins Governor Branstad in Iowa on Thursday to promote his dangerous anti-middle class agenda, we’ll be there to fight back with the truth,” said Matt Sinovic, executive director of Progress Iowa. “Governor Branstad has said he’s ‘inspired’ by Walker, which must be why he has wasted our tax dollars on giveaways to foreign corporations and puts the needs of working Iowans dead last. We want Governor Branstad and every Iowan to know the truth about Scott Walker’s policies and the disastrous impact they have on working families.”
