Statement of Senator Jon Erpenbach on Governor Walker’s continued absence and the resulting infighting between Legislative Republicans

“The public in-fighting between Senate and Assembly Republican leadership is of no benefit to the people of this state. ”

“The public in-fighting between Senate and Assembly Republican leadership is of no benefit to the people of this state.  It does show an inability to govern, even though there are overwhelming GOP majorities in both houses. The GOP throw down also underscores the real problem: The continued absence of a Governor in Wisconsin. Governor Walker’s failed and absent leadership is the root cause of unnecessary delay for this budget. Teleporting press releases on what he will and will not do from hundreds of miles away or sending a tweet with his veto threats is ridiculous. Governor Walker’s absence is a failure of epic proportions and there is no excuse for it at this point, not even a presidential one.”
