Appearing WTMJ with conservative radio talk show host Charlie Sykes, former GOP presidential candidate and Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker endorsed Texas Senator Ted Cruz for president saying he is “all in.”
“Americans want to know what you’re for, not just what you’re against. For me, I spent a lot of time and a lot of prayer and a thought about this and really just fundamentally looked at this decision. First, whether I wanted to endorse or not, having been in this fight. And secondly, whether or not, if I did, who that would be,” Walker explained.
Walker said that he didn’t really know Ted Cruz prior to the campaign, but that getting to know him through campaign stops he realized that Ted Cruz is a decent man who loves his country and family and since both were preacher’s kids, Walker found him easily relatable.
Walker said that both he and Cruz came of age under Ronald Reagan and believes that Ted Cruz would fight for the same principles that Reagan fought for.
“I just see someone who’s willing to uphold those same principles, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse him,” Walker told Sykes.
Scott Walker said that he planned to join Ted Cruz on the campaign trail the next several days leading up to the Wisconsin primary on April 5.
“To me, I’m all in. This is not a default,” Walker said.
Walker released a statement in which he explained why he chose to endorse Ted Cruz.
After eight years of the failed Obama-Clinton Administration, Americans are looking for real leadership and a new direction. Ted Cruz is a principled constitutional conservative who understands that power belongs to the states – and to the people – and not bureaucrats in Washington. Just like we did in Wisconsin, Ted Cruz is not afraid to challenge the status quo and to stand up against the big government special interests. He is the best-positioned candidate to both win the Republican nomination and defeat Hillary Clinton.
That’s why I endorse Ted Cruz for President of the United States.
Yesterday, Charlie Sykes interviewed current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, an epic interview in which Sykes pressed the bloviating billionaire in a way that perhaps no journalist has during the campaign thus far.
