RNC Backs Scott Walker

Scott Walker now officially has the support of the Republican National Committee ahead of his upcoming recall election. An RNC statement explains that the national group is backing the contentious Wisconsin governor against “the national big money, big labor attempt to disenfranchise the voters of Wisconsin through their current recall efforts.” Top GOP officials hope that Walker winning the recall could help push Wisconsin to vote Republican in the presidential election, something the Midwestern state hasn’t done since 1984.
