Gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino is getting a boost from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at a fundraiser next month, the Republican candidate’s campaign confirmed.
Tickets for the June 9 event at Manhattan’s Union League Club start at $500 and run as high as $2,500.
The fundraiser with Walker is one of the more high-profile events for Astorino since he announced his candidacy this year.
And Walker, a potential Republican candidate for president, is one of the more prominent political figures to come to New York on Astorino’s behalf.
Walker has been blasted by the left for his policies toward unions in his state, but he survived a recall campaign in 2012.
If Working Families Party ends up endorsing Andrew Cuomo for governor, teachers looking to protest Cuomo's corporatist education policies can back Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins for governor.
If WFP nominates their own candidate to take on Cuomo, people can vote on the WFP line.
I don't care how much Astorino claims to be opposed to Common Core.
His stances on so many other issues are too right-wing - and Scott Walker's raising funds for Astorino puts an exclamation point on that.
Progressive should not vote for Astorino under any circumstances.
