Lansing, Mich., June 5, 2012 - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak issued the following statement in response to major networks declaring the results of the Wisconsin recall election:
"The real winner tonight are all of Wisconsin's hard working tax payers. I want to congratulate the citizens of Wisconsin for choosing Gov. Scott Walker and putting the interests of hard working middle class families ahead of the radical agenda pursued by liberal interest groups and union bosses.
"The message from Wisconsin is clear: Hard working tax payers are fed-up with the status quo and hungry for the common-sense bold-changes offered by Republicans.
"This is a great day for all Americans who stood squarely with Wisconsin Republicans, Tea Party organizations, and all conservatives in defending our liberty and freedom, and an especially bad night for Barack Obama.
"I especially want to thank Michigan Republican Co-Chair Sharon Wise for leading a group of Michigan activists to Wisconsin and thank the countless volunteers in Michigan who stood with Gov. Scott Walker by participating in the phone-from-home program.
"Michigan is on the cusp of a dramatic turnaround and I look forward to turning our focus entirely toward defending Michigan's comeback against Democrats and special interests who hope to stall the progress made by Gov. Rick Snyder and the Republican-led House and Senate."
