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.
