MADISON, WI – Questions are being raised as connections between Foxconn and Gov. Walker’s campaign were recently brought to light. The company leading the Foxconn development project is run by Jon Hammes, who currently serves as the finance chairman for Gov. Walker’s re-election campaign. Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“After a historic Republican corporate giveaway, taxpayers should be concerned that Foxconn hired a firm owned by a Walker campaign official,” said Senator Shilling. “This taxpayer-funded project is padding the pockets of Gov. Walker’s campaign finance chairman while diverting money away from our schools, roads, and small businesses. I’m disappointed but not surprised by the latest example of Gov. Walker’s political allies profiting at the expense of Wisconsin families.”
