Walker stops in Eau Claire, touts new TV ad about keeping WI working

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Within the next four years, Governor Scott Walker said he has a plan to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come, and the proposals of that plan are laid out in a new TV ad.

The ad was a major talking point during Walker’s stop in Eau Claire on Wednesday. In the ad he talks about plans for addressing student loan relief, by giving graduates up to $5,000 for living and working in the state after they graduate. He also plans to start a youth apprenticeship for 7th and 8th graders, and develop tax credits for child care and low-income senior citizens.

Walker wasn’t just thinking about his plans, he was thinking about his recently appoint opponent, Wisconsin State Superintendent Tony Evers.

"We’re laying out our plans for the future, but I think it’s realistic to say when others in the primary, and even some of the media, didn’t cover the facts about what Tony Evers did or didn’t do. He talked about doing his job last night, I would argue he didn’t do his job."

Walker said there has been little-to-no examination of Evers record as superintendent. Walker also said this is going to be a tough race, because Evers is expecting a large amount of national money to help his candidacy. Because of this, Walker said he could arguably be behind in the next Marquette Poll results.
