Scott Walker reversals piling up as presidential bid looms.  (Chippewa Herald, 3/12/2015)

Larry Sabato, Director, Center for Politics at the University of Virginia
“Nothing much has changed since Richard Nixon formulated the basic strategy for a GOP presidential candidate back in the 1960s: ‘Run to the right to get the nomination, and back to the center for the general election.'  The one shift is that the GOP’s center of gravity is much further to the right today than in Nixon’s time."
