Kleefisch: I'm going to be Walker's biggest advocate

Rebecca Kleefisch says she isn't surprised that she handily won the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor.

At the outset of the race, many insiders gave the edge to state Rep. Brett Davis. But Kleefisch, a former TV reporter and wife of state Rep. Joel Kleefisch, had strong support on conservative talk radio in southeast Wisconsin, and as the days wound down to the primary, her campaign looked to be picking up steam.

"We worked our same plan from the very beginning, our strategy has never changed," Kleefisch told WisPolitics after Davis conceded. "From the very beginning I've been talking about true conservatism and I think that's the only way we take back our state. I think the voters saw that, it resonated with them."

Kleefisch says as lt. guv she would see herself as "VP of marketing for the state of Wisconsin." The office traditionally has not utilized by governors to push policy, but Kleefisch said she expects that to change under a Walker administration.

"Our problems are way too big to have a part of the administration sit around in the closet," she said.

For the next seven weeks, she said, her job will be to get Walker elected.

"I'm going to be his biggest advocate," she said. "I think we're going to be a great ticket."
