(Madison) – Today, Governor Scott Walker suspended his presidential campaign after falling from third in the national polls to near the back of the pack. After Gov. Walker’s announcement, Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement:

“The citizens of Wisconsin said loud and clear that Governor Walker’s divide and conquer philosophy is not how we should do business in America. Unfortunately, Governor Walker lost sight of the fact that, as elected officials, we are here to serve all people, not just a few. I hope this decision provides an opportunity for reflection and a reexamination of the many harmful policies he has enacted.”

    Lena, you are way more optimistic than I am. No, this won’t provide an opportunity for reflection and a reexamination of the many harmful policies he has enacted. I believe he will now double down on enacting even more harmful policies. He will do whatever is in the ALEC book and whatever the rich and corporations want him to do. He’s not smart enough to come up with really good ideas on his own. None of the Republicans are that smart. They need everything handed to them and then they take ownership of those ideas as though they thought of them to begin with. The ideas they do have are so harmful that they are destroying our ecological system and public lands in Wisconsin.

  2. Paul says:

    The people of Wisconsin know that his policies are working, that why he won the recall and reelection.

  3. Terry Ott says:

    Lena, what are you saying here? Your wording is: “The citizens of Wisconsin said loud and clear…”.
    What connection is there between his low polling in the GOP national primary on the one hand and what citizens of Wisconsin “said”?

    Confusing and misleading at the least, and possibly a deliberate fabrication. But wrong wording in any event.
