Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Governor Scott Walker stopped in Chippewa Falls and Lacrosse on Sunday, as he continues his Summer Bus Tour across Wisconsin. Walker said he made these stops, because this area is key to winning the November election.
"The Chippewa Valley in general, that’s why we are here a lot," said Walker. "Obviously you mentioned the Foxconn announcement. We were just here a week and a half ago for the sales tax holiday. So many things we are doing. Breaking ground. We were part of the Mills Fleet Farm Distribution Center and the project there. We were over in Chippewa Falls for our One millionth call. We know it’s an important part of the state’s economy. It’s important overall just for the quality of life in this state."
There is another Republican on the ballot running against Walker, that is Robert Meyer. But Walker said Wednesday, he will begin to lay out their plan to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come, and that he is not looking forward to the outside organizations working against him.
"So, I would image sometime next week after the primary, we’ll start to see the first of the attack ads," said Walker.
Walker said it would be nice to lock in these next four years, so that his plan to ‘push Wisconsin forward’ can be completed.
The partisan primary is on August 14. The general election is on November 6.
