Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker pushed back against attacks leveled at him in recent days by Donald Trump, saying the billionaire is using Democratic attacks to try to throw him off stride in the Republican presidential nomination race.
“He’s using the talking points of the Democrats last year,” the two-term governor said during a happy hour stop Monday in Chicago. “The public in my state reelected me for the third time in four years because they realized those talking points were not the facts.”
Walker, who was aggressively targeted by national Democrats in his re-election bid last year, is the latest Republican presidential candidate to find himself the focus of unwanted attention from Trump, the real estate mogul and reality television celebrity who has upended the Republican race in recent weeks.
“Donald Trump can speak just fine for Donald Trump.”
