VIDEO ICYMI: Gov. Walker: Going Back to Senator Feingold Means More “Big Government Interests” Wisconsin Has Already Rejected
Governor, Ron Johnson hold first joint press conference of 2016 election
In case you missed it, Gov. Scott Walker and Ron Johnson held their first joint press conference of the 2016 election season over the weekend, with the governor saying that going back to Senator Feingold would mean more “big government interests” in the U.S. Senate.
You can watch an excerpt of their press conference before the La Crosse County Lincoln Day Dinner on Saturday here, or read a summary below:
Saying “Ron Johnson has been leading that charge,” against big government, Walker cited Obamacare and regulations on Wisconsin farmers, manufacturers and other small businesses that Senator Feingold championed in his 18 years in Washington, D.C. “Russ Feingold would just take us back to the days of more big government…”
Ron commended Gov. Walker’s record of taking on big government interests in Wisconsin and cited his own background as a manufacturer growing private-sector jobs, noting that Senator Feingold is “completely wedded to big government solutions.”
“If you’ve got a problem, Senator Feingold has got a big government, big-spending solution. And they simply don’t work,” Ron said. “Wisconsin voters have made the right choice here in Wisconsin, and Wisconsin is on the right path – we need to make the right choice here for America.”
