The second-most important election in the U.S. this year is two days away but if you’re hoping for a Scott Walker cameo this morning, you’re out of luck. With a six-point lead and lots of momentum, he’s apparently going to kneel on the football: No major media appearances means no chance of an eleventh-hour gaffe. Can’t say that I blame him. (Tom Barrett will be on CNN in case anyone cares.)
Instead, prepare yourself for wall-to-wall blather about the presidential race from a galaxy of top spokesheads, from Ed Gillespie to Stephanie Cutter to Romney’s dynamic Fehrnstrom/Madden duo to the Axe man himself. Watch for Team O to push their compelling new message about how much more they liked the GOP when McCain’s campaign was busy getting the crap kicked out of it. The full line-up via WaPo:
