VIDEO: Ahead of Walker’s State of the State, DGA Releases “Broken Promises”
Walker Still Hasn’t Delivered Promises on Jobs and Schools
Today, the DGA released a video ahead of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s State of the State address. The video, titled “Broken Promises,” highlights some of Walker’s worst broken promises.
When Walker first ran for governor, he promised to create 250,000 jobs in just four years. In 2014, Politifact rated promise as officially broken. And in the three years since then, Walker has still fallen short of 250,000.
Walker also ran ads claiming that Wisconsin was making record investments in the public education system. Politifact rated that claim mostly false.

“Before Governor Walker makes more empty promises this afternoon, the DGA wanted to remind Wisconsin voters of the ones he’s already broken,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “Walker has failed to deliver on his commitments to fix Wisconsin’s economy and schools. Walker will continue to be haunted by his countless broken promises as he runs for reelection this year.”
