Scott Walker 45th Governor of Wisconsin

Bio: Scott Kevin Walker (born November 2, 1967) is an American Republican politician who began serving as the 45th Governor of Wisconsin on January 3, 2011, after defeating Democratic candidate Tom Barrett, 52 percent to 47 percent in the November 2010 general election. Previously, Walker was the County Executive of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin from 2002 to 2010, and a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly from 1993 to 2002. Walker announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination in the 2016 Presidential election on July 13, 2015. His campaign ended on September 21, 2015. Walker later endorsed Ted Cruz on March 29, 2016 one week before the Wisconsin Primary.

On June 5th, 2012 Walker won the recall election versus Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and said its time, “to put our differences aside and find ways to work together to move Wisconsin forward.” Read the full story from the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune.

Prosecutors allege Gov. Scott Walker at center of ‘criminal scheme‘ to bypass state election laws and illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican state senators. On July 16, 2015 the Wisconsin Supreme Court found Walker  did not illegally collaborate with conservative groups during the recall campaigns.

    Unfortunately I think whenever a lot of these candidates are talked about, the word untrustworthy comes to mind, and that’s the case when we’re talking about Walker aswell.

    With a lot of these politicians you can easily see through their so called policies and you can see they’re only out for themselves. As soon as a candidate actually realises that, then only then are we going to see a person that’s actually worth voting for step up.

    I do not think that Scott Walker is going to win because of Donald Trump. I think Donald Trump is going to win the election. Donald Trump is a businessman and knows how to do business well. The people want a businessman and Donald Trump fits the shoe.

    Play by the books? Nah not this guy.

    I usually hate to be critical and rude but he is an absolute moron! He has no idea what he’s talking about and seems to speak his mind without thinking first.

    Had to rate 2 stars for this person, I wouldn’t say I hate him, I just dislike him.

    How sad is it to be checking out all these candidates and the common words that we see are cheating, corruption, crook, abuse and so on and on. They bend and break the rules and that is why things don’t work as they should.

    Cheating in politics is serious, whether it’s using illegal fundraising techniques or any breaking any other rule. We have rules for a reason, if they aren’t good ones we need to openly discuss the problem and change the rules, not try to get away with breaking ones that aren’t working for our goals.

    I can not give a good rating to Scott Walker because he is not a man who follows the rules, how can he be trusted to work for the good of the people, rather than himself and his friends?

    It is good to see a governor in a northern state who is pro second amendment, and we need more of them. I am honestly glad that he won the recall election.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    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.

    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.
