Scott Walker, You Betcha
Link to November 11 Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article, "Walker Courts Palin Endorsement".
A strategy the newly elected Governors of New Jersey and Virginia studiously avoided.
Excerpt: Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker (note the diversity on his campaign homepage) is among the Republicans lining up for an endorsement from Sarah Palin, the 2008 vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor.
Walker sought help in his run for governor Friday in a half-hour meeting with Palin after her invitation-only Wisconsin Right to Life event.
Time magazine's Web site first reported on the meeting Wednesday, and Walker spokeswoman Jill Bader confirmed it was accurate.
"Sarah Palin is one of many national political figures we're reaching out to help on the campaign trail to be part of Scott's effort," Bader said.
