Scott Walker may be headed for trouble with the GOP establishment (and everyone else, too)

Scott Walker may be headed for trouble with the GOP establishment, according to a new column by Byron York – but that may not be the only problem.

At this point Walker is enjoying some grass roots support among conservatives, but how solid is the governor on bedrock issues? Evidence suggests that he may be squishy on immigration and has in fact mentioned support for some sort of “pathway to citizenship” in the past. He also may be going soft on his opposition to Common Core.

As of now, he is still something of an unknown – an “outsider”, so to speak. That can play well to tea party activists, conservatives and constitutionalists – but his early rise in the polls could lead to a crash if he doesn’t come across as sincere and convincing with the base.

Most of us remember another GOP governor who ran as an “outsider”…George W. Bush, who wound up being nothing more than a globalist, open borders establishment Republican. There are many who do not wish to make that mistake again, and will be watching Walker closely.
