Scott Walker may be as strong as he looks
Scott Walker may be the dream candidate, a conservative who can sell his message to moderate swing voters. He has, after all, won three elections in a purple state but he has done that while being the most conservative governor to seek reelection in 2014. In a post, Scott Walker’s Electoral Record Is Just As Impressive As It Looks, at 538.com Harry Enten argues that Walker is the real deal. According to Enten Walker's conservatism is at a level one would expect to find in the governor of conservative Montana not liberal Wisconsin. Walker was the most conservative incumbent governor to run in 2014 and he bested Democrat Mary Burke by 6 points. The same electorate gave Obama a 4 point edge over Romney in 2012 and remember Wisconsin's own Paul Ryan was on the Republican ticket!
