Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney have found something to agree on — strong support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who faces a recall vote June 5.

Santorum and Romney each hopes his support of the embattled Walker will translate into a victory in Wisconsin’s presidential primary Tuesday, Politico reports.
 
“Let’s face it, this presidential primary is different from any other, because it’s taking the backseat politically to the recall, and it’s completely different,” Ted Kanavas, co-chairman of Romney’s Wisconsin campaign, told the news service. “It’s the only state in the union, I can guarantee you, where presidential politics isn’t as important as something else. The recall’s all people are talking about politically.”
 
But Romney and Santorum’s work on Walker’s behalf has not yet earned either candidate the governor’s backing.
 
“Gov. Walker has not endorsed any presidential candidate. He’s really been sticking to his knitting and working on his own election activities,” Phil Prange, a long-time fundraiser for former Wisconsin governor and now-Senate candidate Tommy Thompson, told Politico. “He has said very publicly that’s not something he can be involved in this election cycle.” 
 
The latest polls in Wisconsin show Romney leading Santorum by 5 to 8 percentage points.
