Strategist: Govs. Walker, Brownback and Sen. Roberts Will Survive

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, and Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts will survive their highly contentious races, says David Fuscus, CEO at Xenophon Strategies.

While Fuscus told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Wednesday that Walker, who is being challenged by Democrat Mary Burke, isn't 100 percent "safe," he said that in the end [Walker will] "pull it out, but it's going to be very close."

"This is one of those races that you can just flip a coin on," he explained. "It comes down to the core of it — it's about jobs, it's about employment — [Walker] promised to create 250,000 jobs in 2010. They've created about 110,000, even though unemployment has gone down. He's getting beat up on that."

However, if Walker wins, "it sets him up to join that front rank of contenders for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination" and he will have won "three elections in four years . . . on his deeply conservative principles."

According to Fuscus, who is also former deputy chief of staff to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, "records are being broken on overall spending" with the amount of money being spent by Burke.

In Kansas, he predicts that even though Brownback and Roberts are struggling, "in the end, they're going to pull it out."

There was a "big infusion of money on the Republican side, and that started to move numbers," he explained.

"There's so much attention being paid to these two races, and there's now so much money that's been infused into the state," he said. "You can't underestimate what infusions of cash to a . . . campaign" can do.

"Pat Roberts has had $4 million that has come in from outside groups from the various committees and things, and that turns into advertising, that gets people's attention, and gets people to solidify their positions and their support," he added.

He said that now voters are "really starting to make up their minds."

"I have a hard time believing that with a state that never went for Barack Obama at all . . . that either one of these two are going to lose the election," he added.
