Gov. Scott Walker Speaks Out Before Tomorrow’s Wisconsin Recall Election
Neil Cavuto sat down with Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) ahead of tomorrow’s Wisconsin recall election. The governor said that if he wins, it would mean “a victory for courage.” He told Cavuto that for years Democrats and Republicans alike have told him that politicians didn’t have the “guts” to take on tough issues.
Gov. Walker also said it is confusing to voters that President Obama has not visited Wisconsin during this time. “I think it’s a sign there’s real concern, what I’ve seen over the weekend, which are voters who tell me they voted for my opponent or they tell me they’re Democrats, but in each case they tell me they’re voting for me
now either because they like the courage I take on the tough problems or a number of them … tell me they don’t like the recall process. My guess is the president and his folks just want to shy away from that.”
The governor said, “My problem with public sector union leaders, the bosses, has been they stood in the way of protecting the taxpayer. I knew for eight years as a county official, I saw the biggest barrier to protecting core services for our people and still protecting property taxpayers was out of control special interest.”
