Scott Walker says he is willing to fight and win for the American people, whether it means taking on Democrats or fellow conservatives.
Scott Walker has been rebranding himself, and New Hampshire voters are taking notice. The Republican presidential candidate and former Iowa caucus favorite emphasized his working class outlook, deeply-held conservative principles, and willingness to go against his own party if it means championing conservatism, Thursday afternoon at a campaign stop in Sunapee, New Hampshire.
A crowd of around 100 gathered at the One Mile West Restaurant and Bar to hear the Wisconsin governor speak.
“I’m not intimidated from anything. I’m not intimidated from the big government union bosses. I’m not intimidated from the liberal special interests from Washington. I’m not intimidated by the establishment in my own party,” an energized Walker told the mostly older crowd.
“Now more than ever, we need leaders that are willing to stand up and not be intimidated by anybody,” he said.
Bogged down by the surging poll numbers of real estate magnate Donald Trump, Walker has been quick to emerge as a candidate willing to go unscripted and shoot from the hip in audience interactions and grassroots engagement with voters.
“For us it’s simple. Grow the economy, repeal Obamacare, reign in the federal regulations that are like a wet blanket on the nation’s economy, put in place an all-of-the-above energy policy – you know we’re finally an energy-rich country we can use it to fuel our nation’s recovery – and help people get the education and skills that they need to succeed in careers that pay far, far more than the minimum wage and then lower the tax burden,” he added.
America doesn’t need to be the “world’s policeman,” but it does need to stand up for itself and allies like Israel Walker said, also adding that the recent Iran deal leads down a very dangerous path, as do concessionary policies with countries such as Russia and China.
America Needs To Start Acting Like It’s Great Again
“America is a great country. We need to just start acting like it again,” he said.
