  1. I may not be from his state, but from an outside perspective he strikes me as one of the worst modern examples of slash and burn conservatism. He’s single handedly decimated labor in his own state and kicked off a brutally effective series of similar schemes in other conservatively led states. The results in his state and Kansas should show you all you need to know about the financial effects on the middle class these actions have had. His connection to these fundraising allegations are just icing on the cake.

  2. Another example of a Republican who is so far right he is out of touch with the American people and reality. You hear this guy talk and it’s just… wow…

  3. I don’t know much about this guy, but it’s not surprising that it seems like he was heavily involved with corruption in order to fund his campaigns. I generally don’t agree that much with republicans, but they usually have a few good ideas, and I know almost nothing about Walker’s policies.

  4. I see that Governor Walker recently suspended his campaign for the 2016 Presidency. I think it’s probably wise for some of the less popular candidates to do this, since the field is so crowded. Having so many candidates can be confusing for voters, and the field is obviously going to narrow eventually anyway, so I respect his decision to step down and let the true front runners rise to the top.

  5. Diane Lane says:

    I agree with Governor Walker’s stance on crime and drugs, as well as many other issues. I will never agree with any candidate 100%, and so pick and choose what I feel is most important. Some of the other issues I feel are important, that Governor Walker appears to agree with me on, are border security, the second amendment, and right to work issues. I’m interested to see who is still in the running for the 2016 presidency, once the field is whittled down.
