RCP’s Bevan: GOP Primary Voters Don’t Care if Walker Shakes Obama’s Hand

‘Scott Walker is going to point out, has pointed out that unemployment in Wisconsin is lower than the national average’

BEVAN: "I don’t think this is a problem. I think the media is going to make more out of this than— I don’t think Republican primary voters in Iowa or anywhere else are going to care that Scott Walker shakes hands with the president when he visits Wisconsin. We’ve seen Rick Perry do it, we’ve seen other governors do it. So I just don’t think this is a big deal. 

"Scott Walker is going to point out, has pointed out that unemployment in Wisconsin is lower than the national average, he has created, the state is seventeenth in job creation, private sector job creation. He’s got all of his talking points, he is going to use them around this visit to make his points and try to differentiate himself from President Obama, and in the end he is not running against President Obama and he is trying to win the Republican nomination."
