Walker's campaign announced he would hold a news conference in Madison, the Wisconsin capital, at 6 p.m. ET on Monday, but it did not say what he would discuss. His campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
But a source familiar with his plans said Walker planned to exit the race for the nomination to represent the party in the November 2016 election.
I don't know the details of who was on the campaign but they clearly failed. To a certain extent The Donald took his clout as the rogue outsider. I am selfishly glad we can keep him in Wisconsin, Gov. Ron Kind has a nauseating ring to it.
If Rick Perry and Scott Walker are the first two candidates to exit the 2016 stakes, it would mean that Republican voters have discarded two of the most successful Republican governors in this century, two men elected governor a total of six times between them, who represent a clear approach to public policy, a broad appeal across multiple ideological factions of the GOP, and have established resumes of executive leadership. Both Perry and Walker have their defects, but they also have the capacity to appeal to the concerns of both the insider and the outsider. But that’s not what Republican voters want in a nominee, and it’s not what they’re going to get.Although not my candidate, the fact that Walker sank so low (despite major success) really does show that it's not just the politicians who bolster the Party of Stupid. The GOP primary process just seems broken.
