Gov. Walker says business hiring will skyrocket after he wins recall election


SPRINGFIELD, IL (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker told an Illinois business conference today that quote, “like a rocket, you’ll see businesses hiring” after the June fifth recall election – which he predicted he would win. The Republican Walker spoke at a meeting of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. About 250 people attended the conference to hear and suggest ideas to reduce their own state’s budget deficit. Walker spoke about his achievements and the way most of Wisconsin’s deficit was slashed. During a question-and-answer period, Rockford business owner Skip Trotter asked about the one thing Wisconsin did to turn the state around. Walker replied quote, “Reform our fiscal space. The best thing we can do for government is provide stability, certainty.” Walker told a McLean County businessman that his strategy to win the June fifth recall contest is simple – “message, manpower, and money.” And Walker said quote, “I believe the truth will triumph.” After his Illinois appearance, Walker was heading to Troy Michigan for a GOP fundraiser. He’s the main speaker at a Ronald Reagan dinner sponsored by a district Republican congressional committee. Walker has raised millions in his out-of-state speeches – and he has often said he would need the money to counteract outside spending by national unions supporting his Democratic opponents.
