GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Gov. Walker a popular pick in 2016 for President by state Republicans
Almost two of every three of Wisconsin's most active Republicans favor Governor Scott Walker for their party's presidential nomination in 2016. That's according to a straw poll by Wis-Politics-Dot-Com at the G-O-P state convention in Milwaukee over the weekend. Walker received 97 of 315 votes from delegates, alternates, and guests in attendance. U-S Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was a distant second with 50 votes.
