Received this e-mail today from Mary Burke's (D. WI) gubernatorial campaign:
Click here to donate to Burke's campaign so she can keep the ad on the air:Yesterday, Scott Walker launched an outrageous ad full of misleading claims about Trek Bicycle.
Let's set the record straight. Watch my response here.
Fact: Almost 1,000 people in Wisconsin work at Trek, a successful company that I helped build.
Fact: Trek makes more bikes in the US than anyone else.
Fact: Walker's WEDC approved millions in tax breaks for companies that relocated jobs overseas.
Fact: Wisconsin is dead last in the Midwest in job growth.We need more Wisconsin success stories like Trek. Instead, Walker is choosing to attack a great Wisconsin business - a business that his flagship jobs agency has had as its poster child up until very recently. It is truly the height of hypocrisy.
For Walker, this is just another political stunt. But his attack on Trek doesn't just affect me, and it isn't just about this election - it hurts employees and families, suppliers and retailers. Trek is a great company that is successful because of its people.
I'm not going to let these false, negative attacks stand.

The tougher they get the tougher I get. Are you with me?
