GOP governor candidates still say they’ll halt high-speed rail
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican candidates for governor Scott Walker and Mark Neumann are finding a lot to agree on in the first of three debates before the Sept. 14 primary.
Walker and Neumann both said at the debate Friday broadcast from the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis that they believe state spending can be cut while funding for transportation can be protected.
They also both agreed that if elected they will be able to stop construction of a high-speed train between Madison and Milwaukee that’s being paid for with federal stimulus money.
Neumann and Walker also agree that taxes are too high and can be cut.
Both candidates are scheduled to debate twice more this month before the primary election. Democrat Tom Barrett is not participating in any of the debate.
