Nikki Haley Joins Walker at Quad, says to “Reward His Courage”
The South Carolina governor hit the campaign trail with Gov. Scott Walker, landing on the factory floor at Quad/Graphics to implore workers to go out and vote.
Hundreds of Quad/Graphics Inc. workers flooded the factory floor Friday afternoon as Gov. Scott Walker and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley addressed employees, asking for their votes on Tuesday.
Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch kicked-off the “grassroots rally” at the factory, introducing Gov. Walker to an enormous round of applause. Just before taking the stage, the governor was handed a traditional dark blue Quad shirt that almost every employee at the factory wears.
“I’m here to ask for your vote on Tuesday,” Gov. Walker said. “This shirt – I’ll be proud to wear it on Wednesday morning after the election and still be Governor Scott Walker… Quad is helping Wisconsin move forward.”
Gov. Walker outlined his string of successful reforms in Wisconsin while summarizing Milwaukee’s latest figures on jobs and taxes, digging into opposing candidate Tom Barrett.
“What we’re seeing today is people really want to see courage, and Scott Walker shows courage..."
And the frenzy continued as the Wis. governor introduced Gov. Nikki Haley, considered by some as the next GOP political powerhouse. She applauded Scott Walker, saying the reason why she came to support him was because he displays courage for all governors.
“I know that the passion, the interest that the people of Wisconsin have is enough for them to get out and vote,” Gov. Haley said. “What we’re seeing today is people really want to see to see courage, and Scott Walker shows courage. But not only does he show courage, but he shows results.
"We’re not looking at deficits; we’re looking at surpluses. We’re not looking at high unemployment; we’re seeing the lowest unemployment rate since 2008. We’re looking at jobs. That’s something people are amazed by, and what we’ll see on Tuesday is people are going to reward courage and vote to keep Scott Walker in office.”
Gov. Haley asked Quad/Graphics works to head to the polls on Tuesday to “reward Scott Walker for the courage he’s shown.”
Numbers from the most recent poll out of Marquette University Law School put Tom Barrett seven points behind Gov. Scott Walker, 45 to 52 percent.
