Scott Walker Dumped?

Over at Addicting Info, Nathaniel Downes is reporting Scott Walker has been dumped by the Koch Bros as their sponsored candidate for President. I wonder if he had to return the ring?

It appears Scott has taken an anti-immigration stance which is something the Koch Brothers oppose. Scott made it apparent, illegal and also legal immigrants are not welcome which is rich in itself as much of Wisconsin is made up of Germans and Norwegians who immigrated to the US and settled in Wisconsin. Scott made his views known during an interview with The Washington Post.

In terms of legal immigration, how we need to approach that going forward is saying . . . the next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, protecting American workers and American wages.’ He went on to cite favorably Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on the subject. ‘The notion that legal immigration hurts the economy and native workers has been rebutted repeatedly and is widely disparaged by a host of pro-growth conservatives and scholars. Mair, whose work on immigration reform is well known, took to Twitter to denounce ‘the full, Olympics-quality flip-flop.’”

This a populist viewpoint and one would expect it to come from Senator Warren’s lips (sans the nativist part) and not Scott Walker’s. Of course, Scott may be attempting to curry the favors of Labor after going after the public unions in Wisconson . . . think anyone will believe him? This stance is in direct conflict with the Koch Bros. who want more immigration which would dilute the labor pool even more thereby shrinking wages. Daily Intelligencer Jonathan Chait is reporting Jeb Bush will be allowed an interview for the candidate position also. Koch early-on support for Scott Walker was disputed by David Koch.

“Let me be clear, I am not endorsing or supporting any candidate for president at this point in time,” Mr. Koch declared for the record.

A Corpocracy at work.
