After watching him defeat his state’s powerful public sector unions in a drawn out, ugly battle, many conservatives hoped Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker would join the presidential race. Indeed he did, but 2016 was and is the Year of the Donald — there was simply no way Walker could hope to compete.
However, Walker is back in the news. On talk radio and on social media, he’s been giving Republican voters a blunt message.
As Dustin Stockton reports for Breitbart.com:
Wisconsin Governor and former Presidential candidate Scott Walker told Wisconsin’s WKOW that a vote for anybody but Trump was essentially a vote for Hillary Clinton. Governor Walker made the remarks to WKOW’s Greg Neumann.
.@ScottWalker tells me the reality is if you don’t vote for @realDonaldTrump you’re voting for @HillaryClinton .#WKOW

The popular Wisconsin Governor also tweeted his support of presumptive nominee Donald Trump Wednesday while squashing RNC convention revolt fantasies by declaring Donald Trump the inevitable Republican Presidential nominee.
Last August, I said I’d support the GOP nominee. It’s now clear who the RNC delegates will vote to nominate. And he is better than she is.

Walker is also scheduled to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. This may not have been Scott Walker’s year, but it’s likely he’ll be a fixture in national GOP politics for some time.
