Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, building on his growing support from conservatives
for a potential 2016 presidential nomination, was set to meet with supply-side economics proponents in New York on Wednesday, The Washington Post reports.
The Republican governor was expected at a private dinner at the upscale "21" Club, along with economists Larry Kudlow, Arthur Laffer, and Stephen Moore, the Post reports, citing unnamed sources.
The trio, who have long been associated with President Ronald Reagan’s economic policies, are high-profile proponents of using tax cuts to boost economic growth, the Post notes.
Supermarket owner and former GOP mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis is hosting the gathering, the Post reports, which also will include investment banker Lewis Lehrman, anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, and philanthropist Jimmy Kemp, the son of Jack Kemp, the late New York congressman who ushered Reagan’s tax reforms through Congress.
Walker's appearance will give him an opportunity to "impress influential conservatives and potential mega-donors," Post political reporter Robert Costa writes.
