LA CROSSE, WI – After Governor Scott Walker’s announcement today, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“The lack of support for Gov. Walker’s presidential campaign is a clear rejection of ‘divide and conquer’ politics and a sign that hardworking families want leaders who are willing to work together toward a brighter future. With the distraction of Gov. Walker’s presidential campaign behind us, I encourage my legislative Republican colleagues to refocus their attention and work with Democrats to restore public school funding, invest in infrastructure and strengthen Wisconsin’s middle class.”

    The Koch bros. dumped him. They aren’t footing the bill for his failure on the national stage where he did not belong in the first place. Unfortunately Wisconsin is stuck with Scooter until next election. You should have gotten rid of him & his minions when you had the chance. The way they have destroyed Wisconsin is criminal.
