PRESS RELEASE: RNC chair statement on Barrett nomination



Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding the Wisconsin recall primary election: 
"After tonight's results Wisconsinites have a clear choice heading into June: take our state in the wrong direction with failed mayor and two-time statewide loser Tom Barrett, or continue to implement the reforms necessary to get Wisconsin's fiscal house in order and put Wisconsinites back to work with Governor Scott Walker," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"But the fight is far from over. Big Labor and Tom Barrett want to take us back to the days of large deficits and big government, when special interests called the shots. Eager for power and campaign cash, Democrats have made it clear they will give in to these demands if elected. While Gov. Walker has worked toward reforming Wisconsin, Tom Barrett buried his head in the sand while Milwaukee's unemployment skyrocketed to 10.4 percent and the city earned the dismal ranking of ninth poorest in the nation.
"So the only way to ensure government in Madison continues to serve the interests of the people-and our state continues to move in the right direction-is to vote for Gov. Walker on June 6.
"With each passing day, voters are witnessing a stronger, more prosperous state thanks to the reforms made by Gov. Walker and Republicans in the legislature. The governor kept his promise to balance the budget, and he did it without raising taxes. He saved teachers, firefighter, and policeman from layoffs-strengthening our towns and communities. Our economy is growing, with unemployment at the lowest level since he took office. And thanks to a better business climate, new jobs are being created every day."
