Americans for Prosperity Launches Bus Tour Across Wisconsin: “Stand Against Spending. Stand With Walker”
Americans for Prosperity today announced the launch of its “Stand Against Spending. Stand With Walker.” bus tour across Wisconsin, March 3-6, to stand against out-of-control state spending by showing continued support for Governor Walker’s commonsense reform to tackle the state’s nearly $4 billion deficit.

“While union protestors continue to rally on the taxpayer’s dime and opposing groups attempt to stifle public debate, Americans for Prosperity will not be intimidated,” said Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips. “We will continue to take a firm stand against wasteful government spending and support responsible economic policies like Governor Walker’s.”

The tour will start in Kenosha on Thursday, March 3 and end in Madison on Sunday, March 6, traveling to 10 Wisconsin cities. A complete schedule of events is below.

Photo opportunity: Activists will take pictures in front of the “Stand Against Spending. Stand With Walker” bus and send photo postcards to their runaway legislators, urging them to put an end to Wisconsin’s out-of-control state spending and to stand with Walker on commonsense spending reforms.
