Walker questions motivation for recall in Germantown stop

Gov. Scott Walker today told supporters in Germantown that he wonders "what this recall is even about anymore."

"Everything they claimed, our opponents claimed it was about, they don't talk about anymore," Walker said. "Why? Because our reforms are working."

Walker stopped in Germantown to thank volunteers that have been making phone calls and knocking on doors for him. He also encouraged supporters to continue their work contacting voters.

"Door-to-door and on the phones will make a difference," Walker said.

Walker was joined by RNC Chair Reince Priebus, who told supporters a win for Walker would "pave the way, and create a path of light for the rest of this country."

Speaking to reporters afterward, Priebus acknowledged both sides will have strong get out the vote efforts, but also questioned why President Barack Obama had not gotten involved, arguing that if Republicans win, Democrats will be less willing to help the president at the grassroots level.

"I think those Democrats are going to look at this president and say 'Thanks a lot pal, appreciate the help.' I think thats a pretty tough dynamic for this president," Preibus said.

Walker reiterated to reporters he is not a target of the John Doe investigation. He said calls for him to release an exoneration letter are an example of "further desperation."

"I think most voters are really put off by this," Walker said. "Because they want us to talk about our records and they want us to talk about our vision."

Asked if he needed a big victory to validate his reforms, the guv pushed back saying Wisconsinites want to move forward.

"Doesn't matter what the percentage is, whether I've won by half a percent or 10 points, really doesn't matter, the people of this state want to move on," Walker said.
