It’s pretty clear that Vice President Mike Pence stands with Gov. Scott Walker, who faces a potentially tough re-election fight in the fall.
“I think he’s the best governor in America, which I can say with much greater confidence now that I don’t have my old job back,” said Pence, a former Indiana governor, during a fundraiser for Walker Wednesday night at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee.
An audio portion of Pence’s remarks was obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Pence said that people across the nation “marvel at what Wisconsin has accomplished over the last eight years,” under Walker, and said the governor “stood unintimidated” during the 2011 standoff with public-sector unions.
