Governor Walker Withdraws Student Regent Nomination

Governor Scott Walker withdrew his nomination of Joshua Inglett, a UW-Platteville student, to the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents today. Walker had announced three nominees, including Inglett on Monday.

Tom Evenson, the governor’s spokesman, did not comment on the withdrawal, but it was widely reported that Inglett signed a petition to recall the governor in 2012. A replacement nominee has not been announced.
