"My first act is to declare an economic emergency," Wisconsin Governor-Elect Scott Walker said in his victory speech. He also committed to generate 250,000 new jobs in his first term and stop passenger rail from Milwaukee to Madison.
"People are scared. They're scared about the economy. They're scared about their own job, or their spouses' jobs, or their neighbors' job, or their kids' job. Tonight I get to tell you 'you don't have to be afraid anymore.' Help is on the way."
