Walker To Walk
Rumor has it that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is set to walk out of the presidential race later tonight.
This is a major event in the Republican race for the White House. Walker was at one time considered to be the frontrunner for the GOP nomination. At that time he had been topping polls in Iowa and being praised from on high conservatives for taking on the labor unions.
However, since Donald Trump entered the presidential race Walker’s fortunes have declined dramatically. He was quickly overtaken by Trump and then by Ben Carson and now languishes near the bottom of the pack.
His contributions to both the Fox and CNN debates were mediocre. A CNN/ORC poll out this weekend found Walker winning support from less than one-half of one percent of GOP primary voters.
If the rumors are indeed true Walker will be the second candidate and the second Governor to retire from the presidential race. Texas Gov. Rick Perry dropped out before last week’s CNN debate in Simi Valley, California.
The big question of course is:
Who will Walker’s supporters turn to now?
