Democratic candidate for Governor Bob Harlow says Governor Walker has not shown leadership on dreamers issue in Wisconsin
As part of the continuing effort to let voters hear their candidates at length and unedited, the CBS 58 News at 4 invites political candidates and lawmakers to joins anchor Michele McCormack and Mike Strehlow on the set.
On Tuesday, Democratic candidate for Governor Bob Harlow talked about his vision for how government should work for the working.
"I'm fighting for the people of Wisconsin and the American way of life," Harlow told CBS 58 News. "I see that under siege in that the rich keep artificially getting richer, directly by government intervention, that's not working for the American people."
Earlier in the day fellow candidate and State School Superintendent Tony Evers blamed Governor Walker for being part of the atmosphere that lead to Tuesday's announcement by the Trump Administration to wind DACA, an executive order from the President Obama Administration which saved children who were brought illegally to the U.S. from deportation.
"It's a tragedy," said Harlow. "You have kids who went to public school and know what it means to be American and now their country doesn't want them. This should be a bi-partisan issue. I think Governor Walker has certainly not taken leadership and not stood up for dreamers in Wisconsin."
The Wisconsin native who received a physics degree from Stanford is devoting himself full time to running for governor.
While he values the importance of high tech jobs, he insisted the incentives package given to Foxconn to build in Wisconsin is flawed.
"There's a lot of misinformation," Harlow declared. "The truth is if this company makes only 1,500 11 dollar an hour jobs they will get over a million dollars of public money a job. A lot of empty promises and that's what you saw the first time Walker ran. He said he was going to create 250,000 job in his first term. Nowhere close. What he's saying is a lie. I will invest in the people of Wisconsin."
