Gubernatorial Candidates Respond To Airline Merger

This morning, it was announced that Southwest Airlines will take over Air Tran in a merger.

Both of our would be governors responded to the news.

Tom Barrett immediately reached out to Southwest Airlines and urged them to make Milwaukee one of their hubs.

Scott Walker immediately reached out to Southwest Airlines and asked them to continue to sponsor his campaign. He then had Tim Russell run around and hand out Southwest Airlines T-shirts.

  1. Sounds great, but here's the problem: Southwest is not a "Hub-Spoke" airline, like most others. So, while it sounds great and looks good that Barrett is asking them to make Milwaukee a hub, the fact is Southwest doesn't have or use hubs, so it's a moot point.
