Scott Walker Suspends 2016 Campaign
He’s encouraging others to drop out of the race as well-though he didn’t specify anyone as of this morning.
He said, “Sadly, the debate taking place in the Republican party today is not focused on that optimistic view of America”.
“Obviously, I’m disappointed, first and foremost”, Westcott said.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted that Walker “remains one of the best governors in the country and I have no doubt that he’ll continue the fight for conservative principles”.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made news when Walker first announced when he, Trumka, reacted with the terse declaration that “Scott Walker is a national disgrace”. For whatever reason – and many have been bandied about – Perry just wasn’t the candidate in flesh and blood that he appeared to be on paper. The Floridian has a foothold in both the establishment and ideological wings of the party, and his favorable ratings among Republican voters have gone up from 44 percent in late July to 57 percent, while his unfavorable ratings have stayed flat at 16 percent.
Wisconsin governor Scott Walker officially suspended his campaign during a press conference on Monday afternoon, calling upon his fellow Republican candidates to drop out of the race in an effort to unite against the “frontrunner”.

Scott Walker that he was immediately suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination may have done more than mark the dramatic collapse of his once high-flying campaign. While Iowa and its kickoff caucus gave Walker the best chance to grab an early victory, his campaign built a wide network of staff and consultants in states that don’t vote until well into March.
Walker’s exit is a stunning and humiliating turn of events. As of now, only Carson and Fiorina are nipping at Trump’s heels in the polls. And some people never are able to project that largeness of spirit and sense of command.
After his fade in polls, Walker took a more aggressive approach, promising to “wreak havoc” on Washington. “We’re working them hard for sure”.

Mr Walker, reading a statement in the Wisconsin capital of Madison, decried the negative tone of the Republican campaign in remarks seemingly directed at New York billionaire Mr Trump.
“I’m looking for a robust debate”, he said.
