Gov. Scott Walker suspends campaign, raising question

Does the GOP electorate actually want an outsider in the White House, making the tough decisions in these uncertain times?

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has terminated his presidential campaign as his poll numbers continued to plummet from an 18%  lead in May.

The accomplished governor who successfully fought out-of-control unions, implemented conservative reforms, slashed Wisconsin’s unemployment rate to 4.6% and became the only governor in American history to survive a 2012 recall election — actually garnering more votes and a higher percentage than in his 2010 election — suspended his campaign today.

Republicans appear to prefer people with no government experience running the government during these precarious times. Dr. Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina continue to generate enthusiasm and see their numbers surge.

    Losing Walker is a shame. He’s a bright guy with a great track record. But he’s young. I expect we’ll see him in a future national election. Whoever wins would be wise to bring him into the administration in a cabinet post.

  2. Andrew says:

    Scott Walker is a big man. It would have been fun having a first lady named Tonette!

    With his brash manner, Trump has sucked all of the air out of the room. But he offers no solid solutions and is vague on answers to specific questions. I’d hate to be his advisers, since I can’t imagine him taking advice. The most we can hope for is that he treads carefully and stops yapping like a half baked school boy…saying nothing.

    In light of Gov. Walker’s withdrawal, I found the following from “Conservative Review” via “The” :

    …pretty interesting brain-food…

    We expect governors to be prime presidential candidates. Yes we are impressed with their success in their states. But, it is yesterdays news. I am tired of hearing it over and over (John Kasich is the worst). They should take a clue from Trump and address the national issues we are concerned about. They need to take on the establishment, not foster it. Walker is said to have a large network he could not support financially. You do not need a large network at this stage of the campaign. You need a powerful message that is looking forward to rebuilding America, not one touting what a great governor you were.
