Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is predicting that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s recall fight to keep his job will help the GOP win the state in the November election.

“By June, when Governor Walker is victorious again, we’ll have a confident and battle-tested ground organization with four straight victories under our belts,” Priebus, a former Wisconsin state GOP chairman, wrote in a campaign memo obtained by Politico.

Priebus, referring to the upcoming recall election that will decide whether fellow Republican Scott remains in office, said his home state is “very much in play" for the party’s presidential nominee. However, recent polls show, at the moment anyway, that President Barack Obama holds a substantial lead over Mitt Romney in the state, as well as any other potential GOP rival.

According to Politico, the Republican chief said the party’s “sophisticated and aggressive turnout program,” which has already contacted a million potential voters in the state, would be the key. He said Tuesday’s GOP primary, in addition to Scott’s recall battle, is another chance for Republican to make their case against Obama and the Democrats.

“With the primary tomorrow, we will also be focused on the president and his failed record. With job approval ratings and ballot match-ups under 50 percent, Obama is not in the same place he was when he took office and enjoyed 60 percent approval or higher,” Priebus said.
