Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker warned the GOP about a blue wave this November and said the Supreme Court race in his state should serve as an example.
Rebecca Dallet, a liberal who did not run as a Democrat but was endorsed by the state party, defeated judge Michael Screnock in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court race. This is the first time a liberal candidate has won a race for an open seat in the state since 1995.
“This is a true wake-up call,” Walker said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “There’s a difference between a wake-up call and a panic call. Panic’s when you’ve got nothing. When you’ve got no record, no agenda, nothing to run on. In this case we do. The warning is, if we don’t do this, if we don’t wake up to what we saw last Tuesday in Wisconsin and really across the nation, there could be a blue wave out there.”
“If you listen in our state … particularly for the Democrats running for governor in this state, their rhetoric is increasingly not just liberal but filled with hatred and anger towards me, towards the president, towards Republicans in general,” he said. “The best way to counter that is through optimism and organization.”
Walker thinks Democrats lack a coherent message and said they are relying on the impeachment of Trump to carry them into power.
“You look at the House, at the Congressional level it’s all about impeachment,” Walker said. “I don’t think people want to go through that.”
“The problem is, if Democrats get into place they’re so liberal, they’re so aggressive,” he concluded. “That’s exactly the sort of thing that I think people need to wake up to.”
