Coinciding with the start of the special session of the Wisconsin legislature to consider the proposed deal with Foxconn, Governor Scott Walker’s re-election campaign has launched a statewide digital ad campaign promoting the announcement that up to 13,000 jobs may be created at a new $10 billion manufacturing facility.
“Foxconn’s investment is a once-in-a-century opportunity to transform Wisconsin’s economy, and an example of Gov. Walker delivering results for hard-working Wisconsin families,” said Joe Fadness, campaign manager in a release Tuesday. “The governor’s bold conservative reforms have Wisconsin headed in the right direction, and we want Wisconsinites to hear that message and see what a bright future our state has under Gov. Walker’s continued leadership.”
Jesse Opoien of the Capital Times reports that a similar ad campaign is being launched by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Janesville. Ryan’s district will contain the site of the future “Wisconn Valley,” the home of the new Foxconn manufacturing facility.
