Walker’s Final Push

The die-hards man the phones:

Milwaukee, Wis. — Governor Scott Walker arrives casually, in jeans and a slate-gray shirt with the sleeves rolled up. It’s a warm, clear Saturday night in southeastern Wisconsin — perfect weather to watch the Brewers, who are playing the Pittsburgh Pirates downtown. The only people at this campaign outpost, a nondescript glass office building about a mile from Walker’s home, are the die-hards. A crowd of 20 people hovers outside near the door; another 30 people are inside. They applaud as Walker slowly makes his way into the phone center, handshake by handshake.

Over on the home page, there’s more about Walker’s visit.
