Capitol Notes: Will Gov. Walker Be Able to Capitalize on Foxconn Expansions?

Jul 2, 2018

The Foxconn groundbreaking last week on Foxconn's huge LCD screen factory in Racine County was a big deal for Gov. Scott Walker. He pushed hard for the Taiwanese electronics giant to locate the plant in Wisconsin. 

The day after the groundbreaking, Walker celebrated the news that Foxconn plans to create at least 200 jobs in Green Bay.  Those workers will develop applications for Foxconn's display screens.

WUWM's Marti Mikkelson talked to Wispolitic's JR Ross about the Foxconn developments in this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation.  She asked how much mileage could Walker get from the Foxconn progress as he runs for reelection this fall.
