Statements from the Wisconsin: 2010 Governor's race

"Under Tom Barrett’s leadership, violent crime in Milwaukee has decreased by over 20% -- to its lowest levels in more than 20 years."

"Wisconsin is one of the highest taxed states in the nation."

Tom Barrett "voted for the largest tax increase in history ... raising taxes on gas and Social Security."

"Walker says he’s for lower taxes. But Milwaukee County spending has gone up by $349 million."

Scott Walker supported the same transportation bill he’s attacking me for. He said at the time it would save the taxpayers money.

Like me, Scott Walker opposed the 1998 transportation bill and the $9 billion of wasteful spending.

Says Mark Neumann = Nancy Pelosi

"My supporters aren't special interest groups in Madison and Milwaukee."

"Since being elected, (Tom Barrett) has dumped 8.2 billion gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan."

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett "has held the line on property taxes."
