The Democratic Party of Wisconsin released the following statement in response to Scott Walker‘s new TV ads on the Foxconn deal, attributable to TJ Helmstetter, DPW spokesperson for the 2018 gubernatorial election:

“Scott Walker knows he’s in trouble on Foxconn and he’s scrambling to play defense. The public is deeply skeptical of Walker’s $4.5 billion Foxconn giveaway. Now, Walker is trying to buy his way out of a bad deal with slick TV ads. But the truth is, a few TV spots can’t make up for 8 years of neglecting Wisconsin’s priorities.

“While Walker was working to further his political ambitions, he defunded the state’s public schools, allowed the roads to crumble, and helped sabotage healthcare. Wisconsin’s schools are facing a funding crisis and a teacher shortage, while Walker gives away billions to a Chinese corporation. No wonder Wisconsin voters are ready for a change.”
