Yep, Looks Like Scott Walker Will Run for President

He pivots to national issues, and takes a swipe at Chris Christie.

Two events this past week combined to remove most doubt regarding whether Scott Walker is running for president and must be taken seriously.

The first was Paul Ryan’s announcement that he is not running. Though a Ryan candidacy seemed unlikely the moment he was offered chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee, his announcement officially removes what would have been the most credible obstacle to a Walker candidacy. The two old political friends now look forward to a possible fruitful collaboration rather than a rivalry.

The second event was the annual State of the State address Tuesday night. Coming on the heels of his inaugural speech on January 5, the speech was notable both for its relative brevity — the governor spoke for less than half an hour in a speech format which typically runs twice as long — and also for the obvious seeds of a campaign for federal office planted within it.

Scott and Tonette Walker’s Frosted Christmas Pecans

Scott loves to host our friends at Christmas.

Every year, our home is filled with laughter and love when we invite friends from our church, our relatives, Scott’s staff, classmates of Matt and Alex, friends of mine from my work at the Lung Association, and others for gatherings during the weeks surrounding Christmas. Scott always starts our parties with a prayer giving thanks and we end our gatherings together singing our favorite Christmas carols. It’s really special, especially with Scott’s busy schedule, to have the the chance to spend time around the holiday with so many people we love.

Another annual tradition in our family is helping Scott make his “frosted Christmas pecans.” Scott seems to make more and more pecans every year – we are running out of counter space and mixing bowls to make them all! Everyone looks forward to his pecans - even our Milwaukee County radio stations get excited when Scott delivers them around town.

I know Scott wishes he could give his pecans to EVERYONE this Christmas, so I thought I’d help him out with the next best thing – sharing our family recipe with you (see below)! I hope your family enjoys this Christmas treat as much as ours does.

Thank you again, and Merry Christmas!

Sincerely,
Tonette Walker

Scott and Tonette Walker’s Frosted Christmas Pecans

½ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pound pecans
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon water

In a bowl mix together, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour pecans in another large bowl. In a separate small dish mix well the egg white and water. Pour egg and water mixture over pecans and mix well. Pour dry ingredient mixture over pecans and mix until all pecans are well coated. Spread pecans on a cookie sheet.

Bake 1 hour at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes. Enjoy.

Register ahead of election? Yes

Most states already require voters to think ahead.

AFTER ALL THE nasty brawling — not just in Wisconsin, but across the nation — over whether Voter ID amounts to sensible security at the polls or a barely veiled suppression effort, a partisan battle over scrapping same-day registration in the state seems unavoidable.
North Pointe

Currently, Wisconsin is one of just a handful of states that allow unregistered individuals to come to the polls on election day and take care of the business right then and there. A substantial majority of states require registration well in advance. For example, in Illinois, registration closes about a month before election day.

The tradition in Wisconsin, however, has been far more liberal. Some like that. Some think it’s ripe for fraud, and creates an undue last-minute burden on election officials.

Wisconsin, a Microcosm of the United States

Scott Walker offers an intriguing glimpse into how conservative principles could succeed on a national scale.

One of the more compelling reasons to consider Scott Walker’s candidacy for president is that he has been elected, repeatedly, governor of a mid-size state with a strong executive. Wisconsin’s state constitution establishes a powerful governor’s seat, as opposed to, say, Texas’ constitution, or even to the limited powers granted to the U.S. president.

There are numerous ways in which the state of Wisconsin is a microcosm of the country, and perhaps advisory of things to come.

The state is deeply polarized, divided almost equally between left and right, as the U.S. has been now for forty years or more, and the state’s Republican Party is itself divided, principally in three parts. The Wisconsin GOP “establishment” generally adheres to the original Big Government principles; it contends with a growing conservative faction and a libertarian faction.

Over the last several national elections, the candidate favored by…

Scott Walker’s Challenges: A Win, But Trouble Ahead in Wisconsin

Never a break for Walker: the state has big issues he must navigate successfully before 2016.

Despite the heady rhetoric about a possible presidential run in 2016, Scott Walker faces significant issues as he contemplates his inauguration and second term.

Walker’s major first-term problem was a $3.6B budget shortfall left to him by the departing Democratic administration. This was an unconstitutional problem, as Wisconsin law requires a balanced budget. He and the Republican-controlled legislature dealt with the problem brilliantly through an initiative known as Act 10, under which they found savings without harming vital services and greatly curtailed the collective bargaining rights of unionized government employees.

Walker was able to balance the budget, to reduce taxes, and to actually project a $900M surplus. Much of the projected surplus was returned to the taxpayers in the form of additional tax cuts.

One problem he now faces lies in that word “projected.”

Walker for President? WI Gov’s Rise Has Similarities to Reagan

He isn’t the great communicator, but his record, abilities, and the opponent’s situation mimic the 1980 race.

The “elephant in the room,” now that Scott Walker has won a remarkable third election as governor of Wisconsin in only four years, is the presidential election in 2016. Well before the 2014 midterms, speculation was rife about Walker’s possible presidential ambitions, and his several trips to neighboring Iowa did nothing to quell it. It is widely assumed that Walker’s possible presidential ambitions are a major reason the national Democratic Party and its various third-party interest groups expended enormous resources in the unsuccessful attempts to defeat him.

There are many reasons for the Democrats to be terrified of a possible Walker candidacy for president. Most of those reasons can be summarized with two words: “Ronald Reagan.”

Red Wave Sweeps Wisconsin

Walker voters definitively rejected all statewide opposition to his policies.

A massive rebuke to the state Democratic Party, its statist policies, and the unrelentingly vicious, negative campaign in which they engaged was delivered last night by the voters of Wisconsin. They re-elected Governor Scott Walker — by the largest margin yet — for the third time in four years.

Yet the win was much more substantial than that. Every Republican incumbent running in the state was re-elected. All but one statewide office (the largely ceremonial secretary of State) up for election was won by Republicans. The GOP picked up two Senate seats in the state legislature (giving the Republicans a 19:14 majority) and three seats in the state Assembly, where they had already enjoyed a more comfortable margin. And the new members make the majority considerably more conservative than it had been previously.

Here are the results with additional commentary:
