Wisconsin Lt. Gov.: We Were Recalled for Doing Our Job
"Well, that's a concern, definitely. I'll acknowledge that from the get-go; they're running, literally, a union boss against me -- the head of the firefighters union is running against me to be lieutenant governor," Kleefisch said.
Kleefisch said a Mitchell victory would undermine Walker's efforts (if retained as governor) to carry out an effective agenda for the last two years of his term.
When asked to respond to detractors who have said her policies have hurt union families, Kleefisch said public employees in Wisconsin have been the "best folks you could meet."
She said, though, that the private sector having been hit hard in the state during the economic downturn forced the government to make cuts, which Kleefisch said meant everyone had to take some responsibility in the state budget cuts.
