Let's talk about Wisconsin for a minute.
The state has 10 electoral votes -- and, even though it hasn't voted for a Republican presidential candidate in more than 20 years, it's still considered a swing state.
(A left-leaning swing state, but still a swing state).
So, you know who's the best person to give advice to Mitt Romney on how to win over the state come November? Recently confirmed Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Not only is Scott a Republican, he's also the only governor in USA history to successfully fend off a recall election ... and he did it in Wisconsin.
Recently, Scott was at an event where he was asked if Mitt would be able to win the state and Scott pulled no punches. He said that with the current campaign message, Mitt isn't connecting with Wisconsin voters.
"You've got to have a vision. You've got to have a message," Scott said. "I don't know that voters are there yet with Gov. Romney. It doesn't mean that he doesn't talk about it, it doesn't mean that he hasn't thought about it, but I think he's got to have a simple message of not only why we need to replace the current occupant in the White House, but also why he would be better."
Uh, actually, Scott, that's pretty good advice.
Color us impressed.
