MADISON (AP) - The decision to close Oscar Mayer's 100-year-old plant in Madison and relocate its corporate headquarters to Chicago was made at the corporate level and "has nothing to do with Wisconsin," Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, the state's job creation agency that Walker created, offered Kraft Heinz "assistance" but the company declined to take it, the governor said.
