In his latest piece in Governing Magazine, Alan Greenblatt argues that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is moving to the center in his bid for a third term. After eight years of conservative policy victories, he is now talking about boosting education funding and covering people with pre-existing conditions.
Is this shift credible? Will voters believe the conservative darling is now a moderate leader? Doesn’t he risk losing his conservative base while reaching out to middle-of-the-road voters? Greenblatt answers these questions and places Gov Walker into context of Wisconsin political history.
