Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) tweeted what seemed to be a backing of Donald Trump on Wednesday. The only problem? He avoided saying Trump’s name.
Walker, who was the first speaker confirmed Tuesday for the Republican National Convention, alluded to the fact that he would be supporting Trump as the GOP nominee over Hillary Clinton.
Last August, I said I’d support the GOP nominee. It’s now clear who the RNC delegates will vote to nominate. And he is better than she is.

Walker has had a long journey in supporting Trump. He previously endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), then said he’d support the nominee no matter what, noting that Trump was better than Clinton. But, when Trump made his controversial comments about a federal judge’s ethnicity, Walker’s stance wavered.
Many noted Walker’s hesitance to say Trump’s name and replied to his tweet with jokes and calls for Walker to “say his name.”
