Obama meets with Walker; Democratic candidate absent
Some unusual political by-play today in Wisconsin.
President Obama shook hands and chatted with his one of his most outspoken Republican critics, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — but he won’t be meeting with the Democrat seeking to oust Walker in the November election, businesswoman Mary Burke.
“Mary Burke has a full day scheduled in western Wisconsin Thursday and will not be able to join the president during his visit to Wisconsin,” Burke spokesman Joe Zepecki told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
