Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is seeking fundraising dollars in the wake of the "gotcha" comment he made regarding the liberal media.
According to The Hill,
Walker's re-election campaign — Friends of Scott Walker — sent out a fundraising email Sunday night. Part of the e-mail said the governor "refuses to be distracted by the small, petty, and pale ideas that the 'gotcha' headline writers for the Liberal Media want to talk about," reports the website.
Walker, who is considering running for president on the Republican ticket next year, has been criticized by some people for refusing to comment on several hot-button topics in recent days.
Last week, Walker would not comment
on whether he agreed with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's claim that President Barack Obama doesn't love America.
Walker also would not say whether he thinks
Obama is a Christian.
And earlier this month, Walker would not say whether he believed in the theory of evolution.
After catching flak from some of the media, Walker hit back on Twitter Saturday:
Walker has enjoyed a recent surge in poll numbers
surrounding the presidential election. No major candidate has publicly committed to running for the White House yet.
In the Sunday night e-mail, Friends of Scott Walker said the governor has been trying to avoid "pointless questions" from "the clueless and mindless journalistic herd."
"He refuses to be drawn into the sideshow of answering pointless questions about whether and how much President Obama loves our country," the e-mail read, according to The Hill.
"To Governor Walker, what matters are ideas, issues, his record, and results. Now is the time to stand up against the publicity hounds and the journalistic pack, and help Governor Walker fight back.
"Your support will show the clueless and mindless journalistic herd that you know what matters most and that it is not the pointless minutiae that they are pushing."
