"Starting tomorrow, Rebecca Kleefisch, and I, and our team will be traveling the state. We’re going to travel the state of Wisconsin laying out very specifically our plan of action for the next 4 years. It’s simple, we call it, Keep Wisconsin Working for Generations to Come. Are you ready to help us implement that plan?"
