Sen. Lena Taylor statement on Walker campaign suspension
“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.”
(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.”
