Scott Walker Endorsed by Congressman Petri

U.S. Rep. Tom Petri said Friday he is endorsing Scott Walker in the 2010 race for governor.

Walker, the Milwaukee County executive, is one of three Republicans seeking their party's nomination. Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle has not announced if he will run for re-election.

"Since Scott took the reins of county government in 2002, he has slashed the county debt by over 10 percent and reduced the taxpayer-funded work forceby more than 20 percent. That is exactly the kind of leadership Wisconsin needs to recover from Gov. Doyle's recklessness," Petri, R-Fond du Lac, said in a press release.

"Scott is the best person to lead Wisconsin forward."

I guess to have served with Mark Neumann in Congress is to endorse Scott Walker as Governor. Ouch, that has to hurt.
