Walker to talk about achievements in speech


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker plans to use his second State of the State speech on Wednesday to talk about his accomplishments and how he believes Wisconsin is poised for a better future.

Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie on Tuesday said the governor plans to use the speech to talk about problems his administration inherited and what he did to address them.

Walker is delivering the speech in the face of an unprecedented effort to recall him from office.

Werwie says the governor will talk about how the governor has worked to create more jobs in the state and deal with a $3.6 billion budget shortfall. About 13,500 private sector jobs have been added since Walker took office, although jobs have been lost for each of the past six months.
