Governor Jim Doyle doubts Chrysler will restart operations in Wisconsin.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the governor said it is "unlikely that Chrysler will exercise its option to purchase the Kenosha car-engine plant."
Doyle calls the news disappointing. Although, he also admits it's not a surprise.
In his statement, the governor says he and his team have had "numerous" discussions with Chrysler and Fiat officials. Doyle says the CEO of Fiat has committed to examining the Kenosha plant for future opportunities with the company.
