FDL And The Fox Valley Important In Gubernatorial Race

Fond du Lac County Republican Party Chairman Rohn Bishop says Governor Scott Walker’s stop at Brenner Tank Tuesday to announce a run for a third term shows how important Fond du Lac and the Fox Valley will be in the Governor’s race next November. Bishop says if Walker wins a third term, it would be the third time someone was elected to at least three terms as Governor of the State of Wisconsin. Warren Knowles served three terms in office and Tommy Thompson was elected governor to four terms, but left part way through his fourth term to serve as U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary under President George W. Bush. Bishop points out this will actually be Walker’s fourth run for Governor if you count the recall election in 2012, which he won.
