MADISON (WKOW) -- Political leaders respond to Kathleen Falk's announcement to run against Governor Scott Walker.
Republican Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Stephan Thompson released the following statement:
"Today, Kathy Falk becomes the first of potentially several liberal Democrats who want to take our state back to the failed policies of the past. With Falk's distinguished career as a government lawyer suing businesses and repeatedly losing statewide elections, we call on Falk to inform Wisconsin families as to how how she will balance Wisconsin's budget; how many taxes will she raise, and how many workers will she lay off? Governor Walker balanced a $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes, and has already created thousands of jobs throughout Wisconsin. Voters showed in 2010 that they're ready to leave the Democrats' era of job loss and deficit spending behind us, and they'll do it again in 2012."
