-- is there welcome home.
Thank you imagine does as -- especially among the well drops that's -- -- that have let that this is the economy this is people working in the business of Milwaukee.
Lots wonderful be home.
I want to ask you about after the election to -- primary have this is an open primary so explain what this week is to be -- and -- it we don't have party registration in Wisconsin.
So you can walk in whoever you Lawrence Allen the Republican ballot or the democratic ballot and and vote whoever you want in the Republican or Democratic Party so.
Like you heard in Michigan -- you know there's always a concern about crossover voting.
Democrats voting in the presidential primary for the Republicans to try and you know vote for whoever they think would be the worst candidate for Obama's face that's always concerned we have here in Wisconsin this -- just -- -- -- -- -- it's -- a bit -- -- -- any -- -- an -- is actually an organization I don't know the -- -- I -- I have -- heard of -- sometimes -- -- -- -- -- -- call.
Campaigns about crossover voting but I've I've not heard of any in this particular case.
This a big primaries -- -- because this could be the one that they really sort of if governor Romney wins tomorrow wins big and it's right.
Even -- -- Santorum wins big in Pennsylvania.
Yeah that's right what if if tomorrow Mitt Romney wins Wisconsin and the Maryland and DC.
I think Rick would have to win something like 82% of the rest of the delegates I just don't see how he could put together.
This is why Ron Johnson our senator -- myself among the -- reasons why we're endorsing Mitt Romney number one we think he's the best person be president.
I spent a lot of time with him talking about the budget going through the details going -- exactly the kind of your point for -- has to be to get America back on track and I'm just convinced.
He has the courage the principles the conservative principles and the ability to put him in action so I think you'll be the best president.
I also think he has the best chance of becoming president of beating Barack Obama.
And so on Tuesday -- tomorrow we Wisconsin -- we think we can make a big difference in that so if he wins Wisconsin.
And these other two states it puts them really far out in the lead.
And -- I would think it makes the -- prohibitive nominee.
And that's why we're saying let's as conservatives coalesce around the nominee because I personally think this primary is -- productive.
But I think we're moving in toward the counter productive days where this thing drags out much longer it's gonna get that much harder to beat Barack Obama in.
Fall -- was going to be probably if you look a little history.
He might have a little bit of an uphill battle on the 2008 President Obama took the state by about fourteen point yeah now two years later Republican governor Scott Walker one by.
Five points which was a big turnaround but now he's taking a lot of heat -- he -- -- recall in -- -- -- things seem -- topsy -- here.
It would George Bush lost Wisconsin -- one half of one point both times last year last time with Obama and John -- -- campaigning here September's campaign didn't exist.
So Obama kind of ran up the score and in the last election where Scott Walker Ron Ron Johnson one to two house seats to the states and with the -- -- And we feel like we have a really good -- Republicans and I think Mitt -- in the best position to win states like ours you know they -- in the Wisconsin's.
Which -- really -- to -- the states to determine this whole thing.
About governor around locker.
This recall in June.
It's good and it it's it seems like it's gotten pretty ugly -- -- it could be a -- we have.
If fight on both sides huge fight we're told that the unions out of around the country gonna -- of -- like forty million dollars in Wisconsin between now and June 5 when that when the recall it.
So it's going to be a massive.
After a big fight I think -- -- -- -- -- thinks that's gonna win because the reforms are working.
Then once these reform but there are there almost a million signatures for -- popular -- we're journalists and judges and I analysts that I journalists that we we've hit.
Reporters and judges are saying the recall petitions.
Supposedly objective people but more the point I met with the school district superintendent of a small collision in the district I represent just -- today.
Because of Scott Walker's reforms.
She -- one point six million dollars just in her school district.
I'm unbeatable that put health insurance help for it because she hasn't -- to use teacher union monopoly insurance plan anymore she saved one point six million.
She's able to put reforms in the classroom that make education better because of these reforms of these walker reforms.
Kept taxes low they didn't require massive layoffs of teachers and other public workers did it require cutting government services.
And it helps balance the budget without raising taxes I -- reforms are working.
I guess that if -- and Governor Walker to have that confidence you have but for the fact that the -- competition had so many signatures on.
And even when I was -- reporting on it.
I got an email from the front and it teaches at the university Wisconsin heard 3.5 years to practice took my spin off because she was so angry mean there's there is Malia there's no anger -- just out it's very angered.
I think as people learn the facts that I think they if they learn about how these reforms are working not just the state level with the local level.
I think by and large Wisconsin -- -- -- are -- it's not vote to recall.
But I think recall.
Over a policy dispute I don't think it's called for.
If people don't like what Scott Walker did which is what he said he would do -- campaigns then I think in that in the normal course of elections when they should probably vote for somebody else.
Arts and we outside money -- -- the -- for his opponent outside money coming in -- -- imagine trying to and so.
I did but -- mention how this becomes have a national election.
You know I think it's been it's it was said in one of the major newspapers in -- -- this is the most important election this year after the presidential election.
Because I was -- -- on the ballot.
What governor or state legislators -- have the courage of addressing the structural problems of their state.
If when they do that this is what happens to them.
That's really profound Scott is taking on the drivers of the debt in Wisconsin just like we are taking on the drivers of our debt in Washington.
We're gonna be attacked by our political adversaries they're not offering solutions just more borrowing and spending more debt more decline.
We're offering solutions we will be attacked for offering no solutions.
I think people are bigger than that I think the American people wanna -- talked to like adults not pandered to like children.
And they're ready for real solutions and honest talk.
As we thank sir thank you.
