More than 150 people crowded Keys Cafe & Bakery Wednesday in Hudson to hear Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett deliver his campaign speech. Barrett is the Democratic gubernatorial candidate facing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in a recall election on June 5.

I’ve never seen the state so torn up, so torn apart, Walker will do more to mobilize the base than any other politician in modern history… even Joseph McCarthy.

NEW CAMPAIGN AD HOLDS BARRETT ACCOUNTABLE FOR FAILED LEADERSHIP

Madison, Wis. – The Friends of Scott Walker campaign has released its latest television ad which draws a distinct contrast between the records and leadership of Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

 

“Tom Barrett is, for a third time, asking Wisconsin voters to elect him governor of Wisconsin while insisting they ignore his failed record as Milwaukee’s mayor,” said Walker campaign spokeswoman Ciara Matthews. “Barrett’s commitment to undo the governor’s successful reforms, his plan to raise taxes, and his failure to address his city’s unemployment crisis, are exactly why voters will again reject Tom Barrett for governor on June 5.”

 

In addition to calling Barrett to the carpet for his record as Milwaukee mayor, the new 30 second ad, “Forward, Backwards,” also highlights Governor Walker’s record of lowering unemployment and property taxes as well as saving Wisconsin taxpayers one billion dollars with his successful reforms.

 

Matthews concluded, “The differences couldn’t be more stark; does Wisconsin go back to failed policies of the past – billion-dollar budget deficits, double-digit tax increase and record job loss under Tom Barrett? Or, do we continue to move forward under the leadership of Governor Walker? Wisconsin voters made their choice clear in 2010, and will reaffirm that decision again in four short weeks.”

What I want to do is give Scott and you in Wisconsin a little preview of what good conservative governance can do for a state.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, campaigning with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Tuesday, said New Jersey faced some of the same challenges as Wisconsin when he took office. Like Walker, he followed a Democratic administration and was forced to take on a massive deficit with a population already overtaxed, he said.
He fixed those problems, and now New Jersey residents and businesses are reaping the benefits, Christie said. Taxes for businesses were already cut and income taxes will be cut later this year.
