Reaching out for GOP consultant a mistake: Scott Walker Struggles in Iowa, His Campaign Reaches Out to a GOP Strategist

walkerI’m very disappointed that Scott Walker is forgetting how to be Scott Walker. Why all of a sudden is he reaching out for a GOP consultant when they are the worst people to run a campaign? Ask Robert Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney.

NY Times reports a consultant to Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin’s presidential campaign telephoned a Georgia-based Republican strategist last week to sound him out about working for Mr. Walker, a sign that he is considering staff changes at a moment when his campaign has been eclipsed by Donald J. Trump.

Mike McElwain, a partner at the media consulting firm that Mr. Walker has retained, called the strategist, Scott Rials, to ask whether he was available to move to Madison, Wis., to join the campaign.

“It was more of a, ‘would you be interested call,’” said Mr. Rials, who worked for Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry in the 2012 campaign. “It wasn’t clear what exactly the job was.” He stressed that no formal offer was presented.

That is often how such inquiries transpire in presidential politics, particularly after campaigns have started and officials are trying to quietly build or restructure their organization.

Mr. Rials, who lives with his family in the Atlanta area, said he told Mr. McElwain that he would not be able to relocate for the campaign.

Kirsten Kukowski, a spokeswoman for Mr. Walker, downplayed the call.

“A vendor for the campaign reached out to someone who pitched to work for us months ago,” Ms. Kukowski said. “There was no offer made at all in any way, shape or form.”
