Doyle Talks Wisconsin Values vs. Washington Ways

Gov. Doyle got his biggest cheers Friday night when he pledged he would not turn his back on families confronting disease and disability who see hope in embryonic stem cell research.

Doyle's support of the research has been a central theme of his campaign. He said being governor of the state of Wisconsin, where the research was pioneered, means he has a special obligation to protect the work.

"I will not let partisan politics slam the door on hope for these families," Doyle said. "For as long as I am governor, Wisconsin will lead the nation in stem cell research."

Doyle opened his speech by contrasting what he said were Wisconsin values and Washington values, an obvious reference to his opponent, U.S. Rep. Mark Green, R-Green Bay.

"In five short months, Wisconsin voters will head to the polls. They will have a clear choice. A choice between the way we do things here in Wisconsin, and the way things get done in Washington. A choice between Wisconsin values and Washington values. A real choice."
