Wisconsin’s presidential primary is just a week away, and as the candidates start to visit the Badger State, Democrats are going after the expected frontrunner in the race.
State Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate says Mitt Romney has come out in support of Governor Walker and how he handled the collective bargaining issue last year. Tate says it’s a sign Romney is trying to reach out to the “extreme right wing” in the state to win votes. However, Tate says Romney can’t “Etch-A-Sketch” away Walker’s extreme positions that have made him the target of a recall.
In a call with reporters Monday, Tate urged voters heading to the polls next Tuesday to review the record of Mitt Romney and how he has changed positions based on the circumstances. Tate says Romney is the “most egregious” candidate running for the GOP nomination.
