Well it could be governor Mitt Romney riding on the coattails of governor Scott Walker lots of Republicans predicting Wisconsin could be in play right now after Walker's.
Stunning big -- victory last night on Fox News exit polls those that Romney is still trailing the president.
In the badger state Virginia governor Bob McDonnell won of those Republicans.
These numbers could -- come November.
What do you figure that -- governor because it's interesting that the president and Governor Walker enjoyed similar approval ratings in the state.
I guess that the speaks of why the president avoided the -- it to avoid too -- law but.
And it would still be a tough road for four Republican to win this state.
Sure it's been a blue state -- for a while.
About a way the president did -- from Minnesota Illinois and I decided not to go to Wisconsin last week which I think says something about what they.
Thought about the -- campaign.
But ironic that I think is that the issues that Scott Walker campaigned on and that is being honest with people about the need to rein in spending and cut taxes and great jobs.
And have a common sense of fiscal policy does the same issues -- -- -- is gonna be campaigning on.
Against Barack Obama and so I I do think that it's gonna have some impact.
Down the -- the other thing -- is that the the turnout was extraordinarily high there's a lot of enthusiasm of the Republican base the coalitions of the Republican Governors Association but I cheer up donating nine billion dollars the Americans for prosperity the NRA all these groups on the ground.
I think really says that our turnout mechanism really surpassed that of the unions and that's that's a positive thing to commit a couple points in Iran via a Romney win.
On the -- I spoke to got to walk about this whole phenomenon what was going on the one thing he kept mentioning again and again to me is.
Visited that Wisconsin is part of a trend and this is now an accepted -- go -- after spending abuses.
Not -- you know lower or our country's in deep trouble where the greatest country on earth -- -- fifteen trillion in debt the president's run up another trillion dollars a year plus.
And we don't have a coherent plan to create more jobs and opportunity get -- -- of that fact his budget gets and another ten -- in the next decades so.
Spending has got to be -- then or we're gonna be in deeper trouble in America and that's significant issue that Romney is going to -- in the then the a battle against Obama because he's had no plan to get -- that a -- Scott Walker said elect me I'll kill I'll kill a three point six billion dollar budget deficit.
Without raising taxes.
And that's what he did and other reforms are working creating jobs and limiting that the same thing that that that rob is going to be talking about for November.
But maybe dot and I know you do you know hopes fans can only hope the state goes red.
But maybe we're reading too much into the assists are bumped into a lot of Wisconsin -- many of whom had not.
I supported Governor Walker in his original election who did now because they would just so incensed about the whole recall process that it wasn't necessary as a waste of money etc.
-- -- But that they are still Democrat -- hard and they -- are not about to flip.
How do you win those guys over.
-- I think there's some sentiment there there's no question there's recall fatigue in Wisconsin and opinion this is a third recall third recall a year the judge in the legislature now the lieutenant governor.
It was a debate about policy that's not what you recall people about.
So -- there's no question that that was some of -- but what I say is a combination of one of the grassroots.
Secondly the significant financial resources that were martialed for walker and that will also be marshaled.
For Romney because -- his support for the American dream of the free enterprise system.
And third because the issues are largely the same.
That the majority does Wisconsin voters voted for walker because his reforms while they might have appeared on popular a year ago they're working.
More jobs lower taxes.
A balanced budget.
I think that when you get results people rewards you and those issues are going to be the same things Romney will be talking about.
Gives Obama 8% unemployment rate America fifteen trillion in debt.
Robby is gonna go after Obama that and rightly so and same thing Wisconsin voters I think elected walker on last night.
Give him a chance to -- but it's it's tough it's a blue state.
And I think walker when does help about.
To your state turned blue last go around 2008 I guess it's purple round whatever they might go purple tie yeah how's it looking right now.
You know -- Obama want to -- he had a ton of money doubled McCain's money he ran on uplifting positive message of hope and change.
Which now it's turned into recession and division with a campaign is running right now.
But I'd say that sense then you know I won by eighteen points we elected three new congressmen the highest number of legislators and the general assembly.
History Republican last November.
I think were returning to our -- -- roots it's a dead heat right now Romney was down eight points just stuck couple months ago it's now a -- And the more you compare Romney's vision what Obama is abysmal record on jobs and taxes and energy.
The better it gets for Mitt Romney -- -- -- we're gonna win Virginia.
Sorry but maybe that Mitt Romney needs a -- on his ticket when -- thing.
Well there's a lot of there's eight million to just throw line but we can find what I've been -- run but.
Hey let god -- -- went in Virginia because I believe we need their later.
-- for America are right governor people heard that you started that -- When -- turnover was going on governor -- thank you very much.
Okay they'll keep up the good work thanks thank you sir well we.
