With Mary Burke doing the Obama-two step on Labor Day, Gov. Walker and his campaign took the opportunity to remind voters that while Burke is afraid to embrace the president publicly she holds many of the same views on politics and policy.
On Friday, Walker's campaign reminded voters that Mary Burke had given $86,000 in campaign contributions to Barack Obama's campaign - more than the average family of four earns in one year.
While Mary Burke might be able to keep the press from taking pictures of her and President Barack Obama together this weekend, she can’t keep the public from knowing that she gave more money to the president than the typical Wisconsin family of four earns in an entire year. Burke’s most recent donation came in the form of a lump sum payment of $73,300 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2012.
Jumping on a 12 second pause from a recent POLITICO interview where Mary Burke struggled to identify what she disagreed with the President on, Walker outlined exactly what how he disagreed with the President.
And just to rub it in a bit more, Walker tweeted a picture of himself greeting the President, something Mary Burke was afraid to do.
