Republican Scott Walker, governor of Wisconsin and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, said e- mails from a corruption probe while he was a county executive are old news being used by Democrats for political reasons.
Scott Walker’s status as a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate was growing as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s was sinking amid the furor raised by politically motivated lane closings and traffic jams.
Billionaires Alice Walton, George Soros and Marc Benioff are helping to finance a super-political action committee encouraging former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president, according to a report filed yesterday with the Federal Election Commission.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is maintaining support from some fellow Republicans following new allegations that he was aware of lane closings that intentionally snarled traffic onto the George Washington Bridge.
Tom Davis, a Republican consultant and former Virginia congressman, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend, that controversies surrounding New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have hurt the Republican’s possible presidential aspirations at a time when he already is viewed skeptically by the party’s base.
