La Crosse, Wis. (WXOW) – Governor Scott Walker continued his statewide bus tour Sunday afternoon, stopping to meet with voters in La Crosse.
Community members showed their support while welcoming the governor at the Republican Headquarters.
Walker spoke on the credibility of recent attack ads against him, along with intentions to ensure health care for people with pre-existing conditions.
The event provides insight into his priorities for a potential third term and how they compare to his opponent’s.
“Now the next part is workforce, and the part I want to do to finish the job in our third and final term is to go out there and grow that workforce,” Governor Walker explains.
“Not only by keeping our graduates here, but attracting new talent to the state. The difference between Tony Evers and I is not on spending. In fact, both of us have committed to spending two thirds on schools in the state.”
Walker says good financial management and positive reforms during his time in office allow for the spending.
Evers plans to improve the state’s workforce by replacing the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation with a new state agency.
The agency would focus on a variety of issues from road maintenance to public transportation.
Three weeks until the two face off in the November elections.
