Walker won with strong support from Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party supporters and a majority of votes from independents.
This race in the Badger State especially interested this Buckeye because I witnessed firsthand the thuggery and deception of the unions and Democrats as they defeated Issue 2 in Ohio, which would have restricted public employee's ability to strike and collectively bargain.
I didn't want the unions to have a payday in Wisconsin like they did in Ohio. I was going to do all I could to stop them, and put the right to work back to the people.
Last Friday, I set out to fly to Wisconsin to make phone calls all day Saturday, joined by six other Leadership Institute graduates (and by that I mean six other people who completed the Youth Leadership School at the Leadership Institute, which is located in Arlington, Virginia).
We fought mother nature, who appeared in the form of a tornado and thunderstorms. A tree fell on the Metro, our flight was delayed five hours and we had to spend the night in the Detroit Rock City's airport. Nothing could stop us, and we did invoke God's hand upon our safety (we prayed). He answered.
BREAKING: On Saturday, we made a record number of phone calls to Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party supporters, independents and everything in between. I only made 800 calls.
The highlight was either a visit from the Republican National Committee chairman, Reince Priebus, or homemade oatmeal cookies made by Scott Walker's mother, also known as "Grandma Walker." (Trust me, those were some good cookies!)
And it all came full circle, Tuesday night, when the associated media called the election with 20 percent of the precincts reporting. I called my dad and we exchanged our mutual hatred for union thug bosses and jubilee for Wisconsin and ultimately the entire country.
Walker showed true class in his victory speech. He looked more like an American president than our current one who wouldn't step foot in WI and yet claimed to stand with Barrett via twitter.
I thank the unions and President Obama for getting America back on the right track. They started the Tea Party movement, and this movement sees no color. We're all Americans, and we're uniting for freedom and liberty for all.
