Walker responds to claims Trump’s visit is a lost cause

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Governor Scott Walker continued his statewide tour with a stop in Chippewa Falls on Saturday.

While visiting with supporters, Governor Walker responded to a Washington Post article that claims President Trump’s aides urged him not to waste time coming to Wisconsin to help Walker, because they believe it’s a lost cause.

“Washington Post notoriously wrong on issues particularly when it comes to the Midwest they’re just wrong,” said Governor Walker. “I talked to the president myself about him coming here. We wanted him to come. We wanted him to come to the northern half of the state of Wisconsin.”

Four of Walker’s former cabinet secretaries have now come out against his re-election. Three of them wrote that it became clear that walker’s focus was not meeting his obligations to the public but advancing his career at a tremendous cost to taxpayers and families.

“I’ve actually had someone in my staff who worked for Joe Lieberman who is Al Gore’s running mate. I’ve had plenty of folks when I was county government who worked for Democrats who worked for me. I’m not afraid to have people with different viewpoints. I’m just always going to make promises to the voters that I follow through with regardless of who is around me,” said Walker.
