DGA Statement on Scott Walker Being Named RGA Chair 

Today, after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was named Chair of the Republican Governors Association for 2017, the Democratic Governors Association released the following statement made by President-elect Donald J. Trump during a 2015 campaign event: 

“Wisconsin is doing terribly,” Trump said in a July 2015 campaign speech delivered in Iowa. “First of all it’s in turmoil. The roads are a disaster because they don’t have any money to rebuild them. They’re borrowing money like crazy. […] They projected a $1 billion surplus and it turns out to be a deficit of $2.2 billion. And money all over the place. The schools are a disaster and they are fighting like crazy because there is no money for schools. The hospitals and education is a disaster, and he was totally in favor of Common Core.”
