Neumann endorses Thompson in concession speech

Mark Neumann threw his support behind Tommy Thompson in his concession speech, urging his supporters "to do everything in their God-given power" to ensure that Thompson defeats Dem candidate Tammy Baldwin.

Neumann said he just spoke to Thompson and that Thompson told him, "It's too bad we both couldn't win."



Neuman said he had believed he could win, but said, "God had a different plan."

Neumann urged his supporters to join him in ensuring that Mitt Romney becomes the next president and that Paul Ryan becomes the next vice president.

"We need to right this great nation," Neumann said. "My dream is that we've turned the corner in this election year 2012, and that a generation from now, the opportunity to live the American dream is alive and well in this, the greatest nation in the world, the United States of America."

Neumann said he hasn't decided whether he will run for office in the future, saying it's up to God's plan.

"In the meantime, I'll go back to business and I'll keep creating jobs for people in Wisconsin like we've been doing," said Neumann, who lives in Nashotah in Waukesha County and owns a home building firm. "I enjoy business and I'm looking forward to getting back to it."


He also denied that past negativity toward Scott Walker hurt his showing in the Senate primary.

"Scott and I are friends," said Neumann. "I look forward to working with him as we win this state for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the fall. We'll be working shoulder to shoulder as we did during his recall and as we did after the primary in the last election."
