RNC chairman reacts to Wisconsin primary election


WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement Tuesday evening regarding the results of the Wisconsin primary:

"I want to congratulate Governor Mitt Romney on his victory tonight in my home state of Wisconsin. I also applaud all of our candidates for their tireless efforts to make Barack Obama a one-term president," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

"Today, Wisconsinites went to the polls to cast their first votes against President Obama's reckless tax-and-spend policies. Badger State voters are ready for a new direction. We cannot afford four more years of Obamanomics and ObamaCare, of record debt and skyrocketing gas prices.

"Wisconsin understands the dangers of big government policies. We were forced to endure them for years at the hands of Democrats in Madison. That's why in 2010 voters elected a slate of Republicans to make state government efficient, effective and responsive to the needs of the people. Less than two years later, they have done exactly that.

"Now, Wisconsin stands ready to bring a new direction to Washington as well by putting a Republican in the White House. With the GOP's strong and sophisticated ground game, our state is poised to deliver a victory to Republicans not only in the June recall election but also in the November presidential election."
