Governor Walker takes swipe at Democratic opponent while in Eau Claire

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Governor Scott Walker took a swipe at his Democratic opponent, Tony Evers while in Eau Claire Wednesday.

Governor Walker spoke at a ribbon cutting ceremony for WIN Network, Data and IT Services, an Eau Claire-based company. WIN recently moved from Banbury Place to the previous Globe University Building.

Walker told News 18, local companies, like WIN, are what will keep graduates here, and attract more to our state. The governor also talked about campaigning against State Superintendent Tony Evers.

He believes Evers will take Wisconsin backward.

"I certainly don’t want to go back to the days when, as a parent, I was worried that my kids would have to move somewhere else to find a job, let alone a career," Walker said. "Today, there are actually more career opportunities than there are even people to fill them, which is precisely why we’re trying to attract even more people into the state."

Governor Walker also said he expects this to be a close race against Evers, but claimed his campaign is focused on highlighting his accomplishments as governor to win over Wisconsin, again.
