Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) was the headline speaker of the Thursday morning set of sessions, and boy did he get the job done.
Walker riled the crowd as he reminded them of the hard work he’d done to turn Wisconsin red. He reminded them of the way that the liberal protest movement had turned out en masse to bring him down but he still came out on top.
Later, Walker returned to the stage with three other Republican Governors. Doug Ducey (R-AZ), Sam Brownback (R-KS), and Matt Bevin (R-KY) all joined Walker on the stage to discuss how conservatives could make federalism “cool” again. Specifically, what could we do to take power from the overbearing federal government and return that power to the states and the people.
It was an interesting discussion and the heart of what the Governors had to say may be the most important lesson to be learned at CPAC 2017.
Republicans have won the House, we’ve won the Senate, we have the Presidency, and we are about to swing the balance of power on the Supreme Court back in our direction… but the job isn’t over, it’s just beginning!
Now, conservatives must continue to agitate, fight, and push our agenda. Now is when we must fight the hardest and make sure that the agenda we voted for becomes reality.
