Walker’s trip will come just weeks after his Tea Party rival Gov. Chris Christie won a landslide reelection, boosting his 2016 election hopes.
“Once again Scott Walker is putting his presidential ambitions above the needs of hard-working families in Wisconsin,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Wednesday. “This is Walker's second time campaigning in New York in the last two months. Instead of taking his dismal record on the road, Walker should be here, working to get Wisconsin’s economy back on track for the middle-class.”
