Scott Walker will stop the high speed rail boondoggle to fix our broken roads and bridges.
Wauwatosa – Today, the campaign of Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, released a new TV ad that directly confronts President Obama and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on their support for the boondoggle $810 million train from Milwaukee to Madison. The new ad was launched alongside a new campaign website: www.NoTrain.com.
President Obama will be in Wisconsin on Monday to headline a $10,000 per photo fundraiser for Tom Barrett, his handpicked candidate for governor.
“The hardworking families of Wisconsin do not want to pick up the tab for yet another of President Obama and Mayor Barrett’s reckless spending sprees,” said Walker. “The $810 million boondoggle train is a perfect example of the out of control taxing and spending in Washington and Madison. This is not ‘free money’ for Wisconsin – this is YOUR money. Unlike Jim Doyle and Tom Barrett, if you elect me governor, I’ll stop this train and put government back on the side of the people.”
On Monday, Scott will be holding a Brown Bag rally under the crumbling Hoan Bridge in opposition to the train. Walker’s ad, “Yes We Can” will air statewide.
