Congressman Mark Green’s statement
Here is the statement from Congressman Mark Green following the announcement that Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker was dropping out of the race for governor:
“Words can’t properly express my appreciation and respect for Scott Walker.
“He’s a committed and principled public leader, who always puts the needs of the taxpayers first.
“His decision today only confirms that.
“More importantly, he’s a good man, wonderful father and husband, and he keeps to his word.
“Milwaukee County is very fortunate to have him as their executive.
“For the last 15 months, Scott’s been my tag-team partner in our mutual cause to bring fiscal responsibly and integrity to the governor’s office.
“Our minor differences have never over shadowed our shared belief that Jim Doyle has spent too much, taxed too much and is too out-of-step with our Wisconsin values.
“I’m looking forward to working with Scott for years to come as we strive to make Wisconsin great again.
“I welcome him with open arms to the Green Team.”
