MOUNT PLEASANT — Gov. Scott Walker on Saturday described Wisconsin Republicans as the party of jobs and a healthy economy, while painting his opponent Tony Evers’ Democrats as the party of high taxes that will drive businesses from the state.
After a final debate with Evers on Friday, Walker made a stop in Mount Pleasant Saturday morning at the Republican Party of Wisconsin Racine field office, 6021 Durand Ave. A group of about 30 supporters crowded into the small space, all donning “I Stand With Scott Walker” stickers and chanting, “four more years.”
During introductory remarks, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, had some harsh criticism of Evers’ performance in the debate.
In contrast, Vos said that Walker, Wisconsin’s governor since 2011, has a clear vision for the future that includes reasonable taxes, low unemployment and more economic opportunity.
