Well is David Koch on board or isn’t he?
My bet he is because Scott Walker is a winner. In the Blue State of Wisconsin he was elected governor twice and withstood a union backed recall in which Walker all but busted the unions turning Wisconsin into a right to work state.

In addition, he has taken Wisconsin from a red state fiscally and turned it one that was in the blue, returning the monies back to the taxpayers in the form of lower taxes.
Most of that tax reductions came from moves that drew big headlines, including two separate cuts in income tax rates, multiple property tax relief measures, and phasing out the the state tax on the production earnings of manufacturers and agricultural businesses.
Scott Walker is a man for all seasons for just the right reasons. Support Scott Walker for President.
I’ve been a proponent of the strict conservative Carly Fiorina being his running mate should he be selected by the Republicans to become their standard-bearer during the 2016 Elections.
Perhaps it might be better to consider Senator Kelly Ayotte from New Hampshire.(home page)
Either of the women mentioned would serve an actual working functional vice presidents. Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard has already indicated if the country needed her to serve, she would be willing to do so.
Should the RNC decide they want a woman on the ticket, a serious look at the voting record of NH Senator Kelly Ayotte, and it’s very clear she is a middle of the road Republican who some conservatives have labeled a RINO who might be just what voters on both sides of the fence are looking for.
Is a woman imperative? Not necessarily, but the right woman would certainly give women destined to vote for Hillary, and they are definitely out there, sorry my friends who frequent this site, but remember Obama received over 90% of the black vote from the black voter.
For that matter, what woman could possibly be as horrible as Joe Biden. The men have been screwing our country up long enough, IMHO it’s time for a woman candidate. The defense rests.
I must admit to being entertained by the like of Harry Reid who told us the Republicans only had losers to run for President.
Really Harry and the best your party can do is throw Hillary and her repeatedly failed dead ideas at the wall?
Perhaps you have forgotten “Hillary Care,” her socialist attempt at taking over the U.S. Health Care system, causing the Democrats to lose the House of Representative to the Republicans, the first time in 40 years. Now just how did that work out for the Democrats? LOL
Predictably Hillary attempted to conduct hearing in secret behind closed doors. Exactly the way Obama Care was foisted upon the U.S. Taxpayer whether they wanted it or not. Apparently Hillary learned her lessons well.
Starting on September 28, 1993, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared for several days of testimony before five congressional committees on health care.Opponents of the bill organized against it before it was presented to the Democratic-controlled Congress on November 20, 1993.
The bill was a complex proposal running more than 1,000 pages, the core element of which was an enforced mandate for employers to provide health insurance coverage to all of their employees. The full text of the November 20 bill (the Health Security Act) is available online.
Opposition to the Clinton plan was initiated by William Kristol and his policy group Project for the Republican Future, which is widely credited with orchestrating the plan’s ultimate defeat through a series of now legendary “policy memos” faxed to Republican leaders.

On Monday, at a fund-raising event in Manhattan for the New York State Republican Party, David Koch told donors that he and his brother, who oversee one of the biggest private political organizations in the country, believed that Mr. Walker would be the Republican nominee.
“When the primaries are over and Scott Walker gets the nomination,” Mr. Koch told the crowd, the billionaire brothers would support him, according to a spokeswoman. (snip)
Two people who attended the event said they heard Mr. Koch go even further, indicating that Mr. Walker should be the Republican nominee. A spokeswoman disputed that wording, saying that Mr. Koch had pledged to remain officially neutral during the primary campaign.
Assuming that David Koch speaks for his brother Charles, this support could be a deal-maker for Walker, because the Kochs not only generously give their own money, but also lead a network of organizations, such as Americans for Prosperity, that attract other substantial donors. However, David Koch has issued a clarification (via Politico):
A Koch spokesperson sends the following statement from David Koch:
While I think Governor Walker is terrific, let me be clear, I am not endorsing or supporting any candidate for President at this point in time.
This would seem to mean that no huge wave of Koch money will flow into the Walker primary campaign immediately.
Some quick implications below:
