What is Scott Walker doing in Wisconsin to put Romney over the top?
OCT 20 2012 | Arm_Bears

Many of we conservatives pitched-in from afar, and sacrificed what we could, to ensure that Scott Walker prevailed in the re-call election in Wisconsin.

What is Scott Walker doing in the Presidential election to return the favor and deliver Wisconsin for Romney?

What is Ohio Governor John Kasich doing? All statewide elected officials in Ohio are Rs’ and also both houses of General Assembly. I sse not one stitch of support on their part to help Romney (except Sen Portman).

I’m a bit jaded so I suspect they held out for “what are you going to do for me” crap.

Only recently elected Senator Rob Portman has actively helped Romney.

Kasich did appear at a Ryan talk at his alma matre, Miami U of Ohio. Kasich literally twiddled his thumbs standing beside Ryan. It was embarrasing. The dude used to have a talk show on Fox news. He KNOWS how to act. What a doo-fuss

Conservatives did. What did Romney do? If Romney was conservative and tea party then Walker should help. Since he is not, Walker owes him nothing!

I speak out of complete ignorance, but what did Romney do to help Scott Walker when he was in serious trouble?

It’s not about owing anyone anything, it’s about getting your marxist, muslim, putrid, festering racist garbage barry out of our White House.

Nothing. Romney did nothing. He didn’t want to be seen with Walker and certainly didn’t support his reforms during the worst of the turmoil. Playing up to Walker after the fact is meaningless.

Walker has been helping him despite Romney’s actions but don’t expect him to warmly embrace Romney or pretend his own supporters will buy the idea Romney is a “Walker” Republican.

Excellent quesiton, thanks for posting this...everyone in WI and all the other close states need to reach out to their state and local elected officials. Now that there is momentum all those elected republicans who blow with the wind should be willing to stand up and give support, but they need encouragement. Walker is chief amongst them...

The best thing that Walker can do for Romney is to NOT be seen with him too much. Walker survived recall, but he is still radioactive to large segments. Their supporters do NOT overlap completely. Romney should thank Walker for his support during the primary, and leave it at that.

I think Kasich wants Romney to lose so he can make a run at the Presidency in 2016 - there is no other explanation for his behavior either now or his “Oh wonderful Me” speech at the Republican convention. He seems too involved in himself to get involved in helping Romney win a must-win election.

Scott Walker already helped Romney by beating back two recall elections on the legislator and for his office. In fact, the DNC did NOT want the UNIONS to attempt a recall on Walker as they knew it was going to fail and only strengthen the LOCAL GOP and hurt Obama in the Presidential election. NOT to mention the RATS/UNIONS in Wisconsin are weakened since they spent so much money on the recalls there is little money for Obama. Finally, whatever resources the UNIONS have they are not spending because they felt Obama abandon them in the Governor recall election.

The best thing that these Republican Governors can do is
insure an honest election. They should have lots of oversight. ID should be checked, even if that means just signature ID. And make sure there is an honest vote count.

Ballots for soldiers absentee ballots should be counted even if received late. I am tired of the Dems disenfranchising our
men in uniform. Dems know Obama cannot win the GI vote.

Try and weed out the phony registration and purge the polls
of the deceased. Make sure the mentally ill and those with dementia are not used by the Dems to vote for Obama in senior homes, that is elder abuse.

Chime in, Wisconsin, on what Scott Walker is doing to help Romney...

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.

Walker has been a pretty regular guest at the rallies around here. He’s appeared with Ryan and with Tommy Thompson a lot, and he’s sent out a jillian fund raising letters for Romney.

Kasich has campaigned with Romney/Ryan in several venues throughout Ohio. As has Rob Portman and Condi Rice.

I know he’s done at least two out-of-state appearances (NH and TN, I think) for the RR ticket, and scads of gigs around the state with various candidates where they promote the whole ticket, of course — not just the candidate with whom he’s appearing.

Since he’s not exactly a non-controversial figure, especially in union-controlled areas, I’m sure the party folks are using him judiciously wherever it makes sense to do so.

I’m getting plenty of Walker emails supporting Romney. Also Walker has to give attention to supporting Tommy Thompson who is in a tougher race than it should be.
