Walker: Budget Deal A Wake Up Call For Conservative Activists

Michael Bonfigli

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Sunday said that while he thinks the budget deal reached last week is a good step, that Republicans need to push for a majority in the Senate in order to pass a more conservative budget.

“What it tells us is if we want a budget deal we can wrap our arms around, we’re going to have to win it in the 2014 elections, particularly in key Senate races,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

When asked if he supported the budget deal, Walker said he did but that it should also motivate conservative activists in the upcoming elections

“I think it is good to go forward, but I also think we need to reinforce why the races like the ones we are going to have in Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina and Alaska, and others across the country are so important,” he said. “It’s really a big wake up call to the fact that if Republicans, in particular grass roots activists, want to see a stronger budget in the future, we’ve got to have some help in the United States Senate.”
