STATEMENT FROM MARK NEUMANN ON MILLER-COORS

WAUKESHA, Wis. - May 21, 2010 - "First, it was Harley-Davidson. Now Miller Coors is considering whether to pull up stakes and leave Milwaukee. This would devastate not only Wisconsin's economy, but also our sense of pride as a state. The potential loss of two world-famous companies, both Wisconsin institutions, is simply unacceptable. 

"It is telling that this is happening under the watch of a career politician who now wants to be Governor. It is clear he doesn't have the ability to solve Wisconsin's jobs crisis. 

"The business climate in Milwaukee and Wisconsin is in dire need of an emergency overhaul. As Governor my highest priority will be to ensure that Wisconsin balances its budget, controls spending and cuts taxes with a goal of generating jobs at a record pace and keeping our largest employers right here."
