Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to Headline Fundraiser for Scott Walker Campaign Scott Walker Campaign Announces Tickets on Sale for March 8th Event 

Wauwatosa, WI – The campaign for Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, today announced that former Florida governor, Jeb Bush, will headline an event in support of his candidacy. 

"I’m honored that Governor Jeb Bush is supporting our campaign and our message of lower taxes, less government, and more freedoms," said Walker.  "Jeb did a tremendous job asgovernor of Florida, cutting $20 billion in taxes, reducing the state government workforce by more than 13,000, and creating a low tax business climate that allowed the private sectorto net 1.4 million new jobs.  He knows that the best way to get our country working again is to get government out of the way of the people.  I’m grateful for Jeb’s commitment to help us take back Wisconsin, and I’m looking forward to hosting him."

"Scott Walker believes small government is better government – and that’s exactly the type of common sense thinking Wisconsin needs to get back to work," said Bush.  "Scott has a proven record of good management – cutting the debt by 10%, the county workforce by 20%, and holding the line on taxes.  I know he’ll make a great governor." 

The Governor Jeb Bush fundraiser in support of Scott Walker will take place on Monday, March 8 at the Pfister Hotel.  Tickets are for sale on Scott Walker’s campaign website, www.ScottWalker.org.
