Columnist Charles Krauthammer declared that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker “has the attributes you’d want for this kind of race” on a Fox News Channel special on Saturday.
“He [Walker] has the attributes you’d want for this kind of race. He has appeal to the Tea Party, has appeal to the more Establishment Republicans. We’re not talking about a Senator, we’re not talking about somebody who makes speeches. He’s been a governor. He did something really important, he took on the unions. He did it at very high risk, high costs he won three elections himself, he won two others which were indirectly about him, a recall election and state Supreme Court election, he won five elections against all the union money in the country. So, he shows he can win. he shows he can govern, he shows he can handle hard issues, and now people are looking at him to see what kind of candidate, how he presents himself. He gave a good speech in Iowa, and that, I think, has sort of rocketed him out of the mass” he stated.
