Chamber Features Panel of Vulnerable Governors

Gov. Scott Walker traveled to Washington,D.C., earlier this week for America’s Small Business Summit, an annual event hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

There, Walker appeared on a special panel titled “How to Lead Enterprising States,” joining with the governors of Maine and Pennsylvania.

“I participated in a good discussion about what we’ve done, and what we can continue to do, to help small businesses grow and thrive,” Walker said in summing up the trip for his weekly radio address.

Corbett is one of the most unpopular governors in the country, and a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday showed 47 percent of survey respondents disapproved of his job performance as governor (compared with 38 percent who approved). The poll also showed 50 percent of voters surveyed say he does not deserve re-election, while 32 percent of respondents backed him for a second term.

Not only does LePage commit to running again (a statement he has avoided making so far) but he promises that he will be “the next Scott Walker,” a reference to the divisive Wisconsin governor who survived a high-profile recall election last year after he attempted to strip union bargaining rights from public employees.
