RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Statement Congratulating Governor Scott Walker

Posted:
WASHINGTON DC (PRESS RELEASE) -

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement congratulating Governor Scott Walker:

"I congratulate Gov. Scott Walker momentous victory in Wisconsin tonight, and I congratulate the people of my home state in defeating the selfish special interests that wanted to take Wisconsin back to the days of Democrats' failed policies," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
 
"Wisconsin has given their stamp of approval to Gov. Walker's successful reforms that balanced the budget, put people back to work, and put government back on the side of the people.
 
"After tonight's results, Democrats and the Obama campaign are surely nervous. As Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, this election was a ‘dry run' for the presidential election. But after President Obama actively avoided Wisconsin and Tom Barrett, one of his earliest supporters, it is hard to imagine how he can now come back to Wisconsin and credibly ask for his party's support in November. The president abandoned his base in this recall, so he shouldn't be surprised if they return the favor in November.
 
"Wisconsin Democrats now head into November dispirited and in disarray, while Republicans remain strong and organized, with momentum on our side."
