Walker Would Support Trump as GOP Nominee
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said that he would support Donald Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee on Wednesday.
“I will support the Republican running against [Democratic presidential candidate] Hillary Clinton in the fall — whoever that is,” Walker said at a news conference, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“I think it’s preferable to have a Republican nominee over Hillary Clinton,” Walker said. “I think there’s a lot of distress, not only amongst Republicans and independents, but I think part of Bernie Sanders‘s support is because a lot of young voters, in particular, don’t trust her.”
The Hill reports:
Walker, who dropped his own presidential bid in the fall, had sidestepped the question when asked if he would back Trump as the GOP’s nominee. Walker currently supports Ted Cruz for the Republican nomination.
When Walker left the race, he encouraged other Republican presidential candidates to do the same “so the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.”
