National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn made the following statement this evening regarding the Wisconsin Senate race and the nomination of former Governor Tommy Thompson as our Republican candidate:
“I congratulate Tommy Thompson on winning the Wisconsin Senate Republican Primary. Governor Thompson’s election ensures that the people of Wisconsin will have a clear choice this November between continuing the status quo of reckless spending, record debt, and higher taxes by electing Tammy Baldwin, or reversing course and finally focusing on pro-jobs, pro-growth policies.
“While Tommy has been a longtime fighter for fixing our nation’s economy and protecting Medicare, Congresswoman Baldwin finds herself to the far left of even President Obama on some of the most important issues facing Americans – a complete government takeover of our health care system, record tax hikes on families and businesses, and more debt that future generations will never be able to repay.
“Once again Wisconsin finds itself at the center of an important election that will help determine whether our country remains on the path of bigger government and higher taxes or the path of less regulation and lower taxes which helps ensure that Wisconsin small business owners have the tools they need to succeed.”
