Gov. Walker Running for Third Term
Governor Scott Walker addressed his goals if elected for a third term in the Northland.
SUPERIOR, Wis.- Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch laid out their campaign visions Wednesday in the Northland.
The main goal is to keep Wisconsin moving forward. The Governor said he plans to focus on the opiod epidemic and support the choice of schools. Gov. Walker plans to run again, because he feels Wisconsin is the best its ever been. Those in attendance feel Gov. Walker played a large part in Wisconsin’s growth.
“I’m here because I believe Scott Walker has done a lot of good for Wisconsin,” supporter Bud Walker said. “He’s turned around a situation where we were one of the highest tax states. We’re still not where we should be and that’s why I’m here to support him.”
Gov. Walker highlighted Wisconsin’s accomplishments during his time in office; the employment rate is at an all time high in state history, the investments made in the K-12 schools, and accumulative tax reforms of eight billion dollars.
“The big public special interest back in Washington, have put a target back on me,” Gov. Scott Walker said. “Reason is simple, they don’t like the fact that I took the power out of the big government special interest and put it firmly into the hands of the hardworking tax payers of this state.”
The rally meant a lot to on-goers.
Various Northlanders told FOX21 Superior can sometimes be left behind, but seeing the Governor travel this far North on the campaign trail was a pleasant surprise.
“Having Scott Walker here is so exciting,” Douglas County Chair of the Republican party Gwen Theien said. “You know we need to emphasize the state of Wisconsin we are so proud of Wisconsin and I think that people forget sometimes being so close to Minnesota, that we are a part of the state of Wisconsin.”
Gov. Walker wrapped up the rally asking for Northlanders to talk with community members and spread the word for his campaign.
