Walker Urges People To Visit Website For Policy Details, Which Aren’t There

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Monday directed Fox News viewers to his campaign website to see where he stands on certain issues, yet his website appears to lack a clear landing page where supporters can read about the presidential candidate’s policy stances and proposals.

While discussing the media’s focus on Donald Trump on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Walker said that people should focus on the details of the candidates’ policy ideas.

“The overall media frenzy across this country, from one network to the next, is focusing on one person when we really should be talking about what we’re for and what plans we have to make this country great again. I hope people join us at ScottWalker.com and see the details, not about what we think about another candidate, but what we think about making this country great again,” Walker said.

Yet as Politico recently noted, numerous presidential candidates including Scott Walker don’t have clear sections on their website that lay out where they stand on the major issues.

Walker’s website includes landing pages for “Meet Scott,” “News,” “Shop,” and “Volunteer.” None of the sections include details about Walker’s policy proposals. The “Meet Scott” section details certain accomplishments from his time as Milwaukee County Executive and governor of Wisconsin, but does not note what Walker would attempt to accomplish as president.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
