That GOP gubernatorial rival Mark Neumann saw right through it, 38 months ago:
Walker made the jobs claim Tuesday at a gathering of Wisconsin businessmen. He said he would create the jobs through six steps, which include lowering or freezing a range of taxes and limiting state regulations.
He declined to offer specifics, saying those details would emerge during the campaign.
Walker's primary opponent, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, also released a statement Wednesday ridiculing Walker's claim. Neumann quoted statistics that suggest Milwaukee has one of the nation's worst records of retaining jobs.
"If Scott Walker had a plan to bring jobs to Wisconsin he should have implemented it in Milwaukee sometime during the last eight years," Neumann said.
