I’ve always been a fan of Gov. Scott Walker. He took on the public sector unions and won. He went through three elections in four years. And he won. He reformed the requirements for individuals seeking welfare and improved Wisconsin schools by holding teachers accountable.
I have a deep connection to Wisconsin. My mom is from Wisconsin and her family still live there. In a lot of ways, I’m more proud of my connection to Wisconsin than I am to my connection to California, and I was born and raised in California.
When I look at the way Gov. Walker has saved Wisconsin from the destructive path the state was on, I can’t help but beam with pride. To take a deeply blue state and turn it red is one thing. To turn a struggling state into a prosperous state is a whole other ballpark.
Walker is my choice for 2016.
After hearing him speak last night at the RNC Winter Meeting, my choice – and my vote, should he run – was solidified.
His Warrior-like spirit is exactly what the GOP needs. When he addressed the need for a leader who fights for conservative principles, it became evident that he can be that leader. He is that leader.
When he spoke of Hillary Clinton and the 2014 election cycle, the crowd roared.
“The reason that Hillary Clinton was a big loser is that she embodies Washington, she lives in Washington. You look at everything people dislike about Washington, she embodies it,” Walker said.
He referenced Clinton’s long stay in Washington between her husband’s presidency, her time in the Senate and in the Obama Administration’s cabinet.
Thinking about it…he’s right. Hillary Clinton does embody what each of us “normal” people hate about Washington – the people who go there and never leave. The establishment sets up shop and continually dictates the lives of everyone outside the beltway, yet they never see how their policies impact the average working American.
