CLEVELAND — America deserves better than Hillary Clinton, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told attendees of the Republican National Convention on Wednesday.
Walker’s speech was his most earnest pitch yet for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, a candidate he has acknowledged wasn’t his first choice or even his second.
But like many other GOP leaders, Walker’s endorsement of Trump was framed by his opposition to presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Last August, I said that any of the Republicans running would be better than Hillary Clinton. I meant it then, and I mean it now,” Walker told the convention audience. “So let me be clear: a vote for anyone other than Donald Trump in November is a vote for Hillary Clinton.”
Walker led the crowd in a call-and-response routine — his “Why?” met with “Because America deserves better!” throughout his remarks.
