Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he’ll prevail in recall
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said his win in a June 5 recall election will push other politicians to work on reforms. He visited the Illinois Policy Institute, a conservative think tank, and spoke in front of 150 people at a downtown luncheon, the Chicago Tribune reports Friday.
“I think when we win, it will not only reaffirm what we did. It will send a powerful message to every politician…in our state and even in our city governments who are trying to take on the tough issues and do the right thing.”
Gubernatorial recalls are traditionally very difficult for non-incumbents to win, but it’s been done before — most prominently in 2003, when Arnold Schwarzenegger toppled unpopular governor Gray Davis in California.
