TEXAS! That’s right, Texas. Scott Walker is surging in the polls all over the nation.
He’s clearly the front runner for the Republican nomination for president. This poll was done locally by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune:
Gov. Walker as he raced at 25 point lead that Sen. Cruz had only last October. Scott Walker is clearly surging, and if he surging in Texas against a favorite son Senator like Ted Cruz it’s a real surge.
Walker is also leaving other prominent names like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Mike Huckabee, in the dust.
We like Scott Walker a lot. He’s got a great record of conservative governance in the purple state of Wisconsin. He’s beaten a gargantuan effort by national unions in the national Democratic Party three times in four years.
Walker has shown that he’s willing to stand and fight for his principles he doesn’t back down. He’s also shown, given the effort that Democrats and unions have put into digging into his past, that there’s not likely much of anything they can use against him.
If Scott Walker decides to run for president he’s going to be a very formidable candidate. His history suggests he doesn’t take on challenges – like an election – with the expectation that he might lose.
2016 is going to be a very exciting year.
