Wisconsin governor rolls out campaign sites using social media

Friday afternoon, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker utilized his social media accounts for a pre-campaign digital roll out.

Teasing the news on Twitter just moments before, Walker’s staff directed Twitter followers to Instagram.

Walked descends from his throne of skulls.

I also detect whiffs of anti-Walker with the ‘coy’ adjective applied to a routine email reachout, scare quotes re: “if”, etc.

Hillary Clinton needs a Walker.
