Statement on Gov. Walker Announcement

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.”
