    Scott Walker Endorses Ted Cruz

    Scott Walker Endorses Ted Cruz

    Will help get out the vote for April 5 primary

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker appeared on the Charlie Sykes radio show in Wisconsin and endorsed …

    Ted Cruz.

    It was a very strong endorsement for Cruz, not an anti-Trump endorsement. Walker said he was “all in” for Cruz.

    Scott Walker Statement Endorsing Ted Cruz

    This is not a big shock, and was the focus of speculation for a couple of weeks.

    I doubt this will affect national numbers, but will be important for the Wisconsin April 5 primary. Above all else, it will help motivate and get out the rank and file who helped Walker overcome the Democratic onslaught over the union reform bill and recall challenge. It also may help keep Kasich from being a spoiler.

    There are 42 delegates at stake. The statewide winner gets 18, then there are 3 each for the winner of each congressional district.

    Cruz has been on the ground in Wisconsin building a Walker-style voter turnout model, while Trump is just showing up:

    Donald Trump is planning to make his first campaign visit to Wisconsin on Tuesday, where the upcoming Republican presidential primary could mark a turning point in the unpredictable GOP race.

    But rival Ted Cruz has gotten a jumpstart on the contest, racking up influential endorsements, campaigning in key regions and supported by bullish advertising campaign….

    As Cruz campaigned across the state ahead of the Easter holiday, he was following a winning roadmap drawn by Wisconsin governor – and former 2016 presidential hopeful – Scott Walker in 2010, up Wisconsin’s rural and working-class midsection -the same demographic that has driven Trump’s success thus far.

    Cruz has mined the GOP vote-rich swath of farms and factories from south-central Wisconsin, up the Fox River Valley’s corridor of paper mills, small towns – among them, some of the most swing-prone counties in the country.

    The Fox River Valley, suburban Milwaukee and the rural counties outside Madison are home to 75 percent of Wisconsin’s most reliable Republican primary voters, said Keith Gilkes, a veteran Walker adviser who worked for his 2010 GOP primary campaign.

    There isn’t a lot of polling for the Wisconsin Republican primary; the two most recent polls show Cruz up slightly.

    Conservative talk radio in Wisconsin is solidly behind Cruz, including Sykes, who endorsed Cruz. Sykes had a brutal interview with Trump the other day, in which he pressed Trump about his mocking of Heidi Cruz.

    The interview has been described Trump walks into #NeverTrump radio buzzsaw:

    For 13 minutes, Donald Trump clashed with Milwaukee radio host Charlie Sykes on his program Monday morning, defending his past statements and policy positions. Less than four minutes before the 17-minute interview wrapped, Trump found out why.

    “Mr. Trump, before you called into my show did you know that I’m a #NeverTrump guy?” asked Sykes, a Ted Cruz supporter who has vowed to never vote for the New York billionaire.

    “No, I didn’t know that, but I assume you’re also an intelligent guy. I know you’re an intelligent guy, and you understand what’s going on,” Trump said. “Our country is getting ripped off by every country we do business with.”

    Sykes will not get another interview with Trump after this, and he must have known it going into the interview.

    But Sykes didn’t care, since unlike the mainstream cable media, he’s not looking to Trump to pump ratings, so he could do the type of interview  cable media won’t.

    If Cruz wins big in Wisconsin, it would be a big blow to Trump’s chances of getting a majority of delegates prior to the convention.

    I guess I can give Trump a little credit for going on the air with Charlie Sykes, although it’s not like Sykes would have ever been at all disrespectful. That’s why Charlie got the interview and not a few of the other conservative talking heads. Trump’s people went for the best reception they could get. A couple of the more vicious talkers would have gotten pretty good mileage out of eviscerating Trump.

      I got the sense from the interview, which I listened to in full, that the hump didn’t know Sykes was a #Nevertrump. It was probably the result of more crackerjack research by his campaign staff. The evidence indicates the hump wouldn’t have done the interview if he’d known Sykes was not a friend, seeing as how he’s scared of Megyn Kelly, refuses to debate Cruz one-on-one, won’t talk to NR, and believes that “everyone loves me, they love me!”

    New Optimus WI poll out today. 6100 sample size and margin of error 1.1.

    Trump 31%
    Kasich 29%
    Cruz 27%

    That is pretty amazing considering are the forces aligned against Trump in Wisconsin.

    Trump still a lock in New York. Must win California.

    Can’t wait for next shoes to drop on #CruzSexScandal

    His refusal to deny any affairs guarantee they are out there. Hopefully more facts emerge before April 5.

      I don’t understand how endorsements from candidates who were rejected are helpful. But I guess we’ll see. Meanwhile:

      Ted Cruz refuses to deny that he’s been unfaithful to his wife. Ostensibly won’t dignify the question with a response. Which is odd, because he’s repeatedly dignified the National Enquirer article (which he could have ignored) with denials — even to falsely blaming it on Trump, rather than Rubio and Stop-Trump crowd.

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Gary Britt. | March 29, 2016 at 5:44 pm

      Cruz absolutely denied it right after the story broke and absolutely denied it full-on last night on Hannity. No two ways about it. Such statements from you cannot be considered lack of information or misinformation because we’ve all seen how closely you follow everything Cruz says and does. That makes you just another dirty, smutty liar like the hump.

      Your post sounds like a little collection of twitters.

        Eskyman in reply to JackRussellTerrierist. | March 30, 2016 at 11:39 pm

        To the best of my knowledge, Cruz has never “denied” this story; he has called it “garbage” and other things, but he’s never said, “No, I’ve never slept with anyone not my wife” or used any language like that. Remember, he’s a lawyer, and by all accounts a very good one. I recall another lawyer who had to parse the meaning of “is” because the honest truth would undo him; this is a horse of the same color, and the odor of the BS is very similar too.

        There is a story at the Daily Mail which is illustrative:
        “But instead of making a blanket declaration that he has been faithful during the entirety of his 14-year marriage – a move that would effectively end the vicious news cycle – Cruz stood silently as campaign surrogate Carly Fiorina leapt in to intercept the question and change the subject.”

        There is also the interesting circumstance in which a Cruz PAC donated $500,000 to Carly Fiorina’s PAC; I’m sure we all know that candidates never, ever have anything at all to do with PACs, though. Good thing candidates always follow the law, isn’t it! To suspicious minds, though, somehow it looks… sleazy, underhanded, and kindasorta like a payoff; crazy talk, I know!

    Trump called into the show. And it was a very good interview, both in the questions and in the answers.

      Do you even walk upright? If so, you are truly delusional. It was a great interview for Sykes, but a terrible interview for the hump. The hump got his arse kicked to hell and back. I guess that crack campaign team of his that did such a TERRIFIC BEST GREATEST YUGE job of researching delegate allocation rules in LA were really on top of this one, too. Yessirree Bob, a fine piece of campaign work by only the BEST and the GREATEST and the most TERRIFIC campaign team to ever hustle the voters.

      The hump couldn’t even handle a little talk radio guy in WI. No wonder he’s scared to debate Ted or talk to Megyn Kelly. He’s a coward. A jellyfish. All bark and lawsuits from an empty-headed, spoiled 10 yr. old.

      And you think THIS interview went well for the hump? Somewhere there’s a village missing its idiot.

    Trump confidant Roger Stone spoke with Frank Morano on AM970 The Answer in New Jersey/New York on Sunday morning about allegations that he planted the story in this week’s National Enquirer accusing Ted Cruz of multiple extra-marital affairs.

    “He’s a lawyer himself,” he said, “so why won’t he sue? It won’t cost him anything. To be absolutely clear — Cruz won’t sue because the allegations are largely true.”


    — “The Rubio campaign elected not to use this information, but they kept it as a hedge about some of the allegations about Rubio’s personal life.”

    — “Cruz holds himself out as a moral exemplar, and I think it is the hypocrisy that once again is problematic here. Where’s his lawsuit? Where’s his $100 million lawsuit against the National Enquirer…”

    — “This is very much like the John Edwards case, when the Washington Post, who is chasing this story, or the AP, who is chasing the story. The dirty little secret here is this isn’t just the National Enquirer, this is major media organizations. Every major media organization in the country is pursuing this story. And they are well familiar with the names.”

    — “And you have to wonder whether these women, one of whom worked for the Carly Fiorina campaign and then shortly thereafter Ted Cruz pays Carly half a million dollars. Ted despises Carly, and Carly despises Ted. What is the $500,000 for? Can you say hush money?”

    — “Maybe Donald Trump is talking about Heidi’s mental breakdown, and the fact that she was found by the local police wandering and disoriented, and she was deemed to be a threat to herself.”

    — “Heidi with her husband posing as a conservative Republican was a top aide to Condoleezza Rice at the National Security Council prior to going to the U.S. Trade Rep’s office where she was a top aide for Robert Zelick, who took her to Goldman Sachs — You remember who they are? The bank you and I bailed out.– Goldman then subsequently gave a million dollar illegal sweetheart deal to the Cruz campaign, which he lied about.”

      Only one who is ill-informed makes a big deal about someone NOT suing.

      First, one should avoid lawsuits at all times as it takes a heavy toll on the parties. Time, money, effort, and energy can be properly used in other areas but will be sucked into any lawsuit. Anytime one is thinking of a lawsuit, the first thought should be to ask oneself what do you gain if you are successful. Many alreayy think the purveyors of such rumors are less than trustworthy now.

      Second, lawsuits are very messy and public. This is particularly true of anything involving a public figure. The burden of proof is much higher for a public figure.

      This has a very big Streisand effect of magnifying the issues involved. The anti-Cruz folks just want him to go on record denying anything as THAT is news regardless of the merits.

      Is it me … or does Roger Stone look like Pee Wee Herman?

      Yet another lie. How are you not ashamed to lie so blatantly?

      Of course, Bierhall Bullyboi Britt endorses the use of Collectivist “Salon” as a “source authority”.

      What an obvious lying SOS…!!!

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Gary Britt. | March 29, 2016 at 6:34 pm

      Oh, my God. You’re actually linking to and quoting Salon to support you? My, how the hump has brought ordinary men into his festering swamp.

      You call yourself a conservative and cite Salon? Those are irreconcilable conditions.

      The affairs by Cruz are true and he won’t deny having affairs when asked that direct question. The salon article shows exactly why Cruz will be destroyed by media and democrats in a general election which in turn destroys Cruz argument in primary why people should vote for him.

      Some people think ahead while others don’t think at all and just throw their feces around like monkeys.
