CHICAGO, August 23, 2011—Which GOP Presidential hopeful will have Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) support in 2012? Will it be Bachman? Romney? Perry? or Paul?

Fresh from Tuesday night’s victory against a Democrat-led recall effort to reclaim the senate, Walker, for many conservatives, has become a national symbol of reform. They realize that America is at a crossroads: Do we succeed as a country, or do we fail? Walker’s fight is helping to answer that question.  

Why? Because voters perceive the young governor’s fight as their own. He is fighting government waste, fraud, and abuse of power. He is fighting special interests, arguably less concerned about Wisconsin’s fiscal health than their own. Walker is mirred in red tape and must battle vicious political interests adept at using character assassination to achieve their political ends. 

Isn’t this the same political war being waged inside the Beltway now?

Throughout it all, Walker has stood tall. He has rarely wavered. And though not unscathed, he has for now come out the victor. Winning this tough battle has earned him political stripes, and those political stripes translate into voter loyalty that can help sway elections in the critical Midwest.

Obama’s Midwest. 

Obama must do well here in the Heartland to win in 2012. If he loses the Heartland, he loses it all. 

So Walker - whether you love him or hate him - will have a say. What will that say be be in 2012, and how will it translate into votes for the GOP?

Gov. Scott Walker was in Chicago for a fundraiser for Family PAC tuesday evening and was willing to answer the question of whom he will support for the presidential nomination as well as what he thinks of Romney and Perry.

What does he think of his status as a national symbol for reform? And what does he think of President Obama’s 38% approval?
