Walker: Wisconsin GOP Should Focus on Recall

Monday, 23 May 2011 11:29 AM

Gov. Scott Walker told the Wisconsin Republican Party at its annual convention that the party needs to focus on defending six state senators in a recall election so not to endanger his entire agenda. The governor’s warning came amid the backdrop of a convention dominated by the issue of who will run for the open senate seat of retiring Democrat Sen. Herb Kohl, WITI-TV Fox 6 in Milwaukee reported Monday.

walker, wisconsin, recall"For the next two months, you shouldn't think about any United States Senate seat,” Walker said at the convention over the weekend. “You should think about protecting six brave senators and picking up three others."

Chris Haworth, a veteran political consultant, said the key for both parties is “to motivate their bases in the senate districts to either hold onto those seats or have them change over."

Haworth echoed Walker in the belief that the governor’s initiatives are at stake.

"It certainly would make it a lot more difficult for Scott Walker to pass his agenda that he has fought hard for thus far," He said.

Six Republicans and three Democrats are targeted for recalls in the wake of the controversy over Walker’s fight with public employees’ union over eliminating collective bargaining rights.
