Craig: Win shows Walker's approach 'spot on'

Republican Dave Craig, who won the 83rd AD special election with 74 percent of the vote, says his overwhelming win sends a loud message backing Gov. Scott Walker's approach in Madison.

Craig easily downed Dem James Brownlow in the heavily Republican district with 74 percent of the vote, according to unofficial returns.

"It means that people are engaged in this debate," Craig said. "Another thing, it sends a loud message to the governor that what he’s done thus far has been spot on. It means what I've been running on -- the fact that the spending spree in Madison has to stop and stop right now -- has been confirmed."

Craig has been on unpaid leave from his job as an aide to U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville. He said he would likely return to that job briefly and then resign as he takes his Assembly seat.

He expected the budget would be his top priority once arriving in Madison, but said he hopes to be in his seat by the time the Assembly takes up legislation such as concealed carry and voter ID.

"Everyone I’ve talked to says there’s going to be a lot of work out there, and I can’t wait to get to it," he said.
