Rand Paul, Chris Christie doing ‘disservice to the party,’ Wis. Gov. Scott Walker says

August 20, 2013

High-profile Republicans already engaged in presidential politics — more than three years before the 2016 election — are hurting the party and the nation, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday.

Mr. Walker, who appeared on “Fox & Friends,” specifically was referring to the public spat between Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both of whom are expected to run for president and already have begun to engage in a de facto primary election fight with each other.

But by focusing too much on the 2016 cycle, the GOP could blow its chances in next year’s midterms, according to Mr. Walker.

“I think it’s too early. I think it’s a disservice to the party and the country,” he said. “We’ve got 36 races for governor next year. Twenty-two of them, including me, are [incumbent] Republican governors. You’ve got the U.S. Senate, where we’ve got a very real chance to get the majority. Keep the House, which has been doing a good job; get the Senate back. Then whomever the nominee is in 2016 has a real opportunity — he or she on the Republican side can ultimately come in and say, ‘We can turn America around.’”

    I totally agree with Gov. Walker. This
    in fighting (in the GOP) has got to stop.
    We all need to support the GOP candidate
    who wins the primary too, regardless of
    whether or not he is your top choice.

    Scott Walker is doing a disgrace to the county because he is in favor of Amnesty

  • Independent says:

    Gov. Christie should attend to the problems in his state and stay out of the ‘pre-presidential’ politicking. Senator Rand is doing nothing more than what he has always done – speaking out to let ‘we the people’ know what is really going on in DC supposedly ‘in our name’. I think most people have had Senator Rand in mind to run in 2016 and he probably should. Gov Christie is way too ‘wishy washy’ to be trusted with the office of the president – even if his buddy (the current president) thinks so.
    I think it is great that Gov Christie is losing weight but that alone will not get him on the ticket. he needs to follow through on his promises to New Jersey and they need to see prolonged successes before he can claim victory. He seems like he is running around trying to be the popular kid on the playground and will agree with whatever clique that will take him. I am sure he is a nice man and good to his family but he is too brash and fickle to at this point. 2016 is a long way off and there is much work to be done on behalf of ‘we the people’ to ensure we have the best representatives to work for us. Sen Rand is always looking out for his constituents as well as the rest of the country, Christie should not be attacking him for doing what is right.
