WEST ALLIS, WI (WTAQ) - Friday is Governor Scott Walker’s 45th birthday – and he says he’d love nothing more than for Wisconsin to help send his fellow Republican Mitt Romney to the White House on Tuesday.
Walker spoke at a rally in West Allis Friday morning, where Romney spelled out dire economic possibilities if President Obama is re-elected.
The governor was greeted by supporters who sang “Happy Birthday.” Walker said he doesn’t want cards or gifts – he just wants volunteers to get Romney supporters to the polls on Tuesday.
He joked that volunteers have no excuse to take Saturday off, since the Wisconsin football team doesn’t play. The Badgers are on their bye week.
Walker was elected governor on his 43rd birthday. He notes that he’s Wisconsin’s 45th governor – and it would great if Romney could become the nation’s 45th president.
