Wisc. Gov. Scott Walker to campaign for McCrory

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will campaign for GOP gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory in Raleigh and Greensboro later this month.

“I look forward to proudly welcoming Scott Walker to North Carolina, a reform-minded governor that is showing strong leadership in Wisconsin,” McCrory said. “He turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a surplus without raising taxes – while improving education. That's the kind oif leadership that we need in North Carolina to start a Carolina comeback.''

Walker will appear Sept. 25. Details of the visit will be made available later.

Walker has become a favorite of many conservatives because of efforts to strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights, and because he beat back a recall effort. (North Carolina state employees have no collective bargaining rights.)

Democratic candidate Walter Dalton on Thursday warned that the election of McCrory would mean four years of Scott Walker-like leadership in Raleigh with state employees the target.
