#Hashtag: Scott Walker drops out


Scott Walker today has joined Texas Gov. Rick Perry as prominent Republican candidates for President that have dropped out of the running. After starting off as a top contender, often viewed as the biggest opposition to former front-runner Jeb Bush, Walker’s prospects have steadily and substantially fallen.

The Associated Press reacted today in their article “Wisconsin’s Walker exits ’16 race with harsh words for Trump,” detailing that “Walker, 47, tried to appeal to religious conservatives, tea party conservatives and the more traditional GOP base. He tried to cast himself as an unintimidated conservative fighter who had a record of victories in a state that hasn’t voted Republican for president since 1984. Like Perry, however, Walker found little room for such a message in a race dominated by Trump.”

The political scramble is well underway.

Guess he can go back to terrorizing teachers in Wisconsin. Good effort, Gov. Walker, I will sincerely miss your lack of presence both in the debates and seemingly in your own faculties.

Hi, I’m Jonathan. I graduate this December, majoring in Anthropology, with minors in Creative Writing and Political Science. After that … we’ll see. Maybe graduate school in environmental anthropology. Maybe I’ll finally pursue my old childhood dream of becoming an infomercial host. It’s up in the air. Some of my interests and hobbies include devout sports fanaticism, religious study, and composing country songs that serve to explain the unearthly amount of disdain I have for country music. My band’s called Catfish Hurricane, you should check us out. Well, actually, you shouldn’t. I love writing, which is how I accidentally stumbled into this job. This stumbling into good things is my plan for life in general.
