Scott Walker switches parties, announces U.S. Senate run against Coons

Scott Walker – WGMD’s Rob Petree

After a failed bid for Congress, Scott Walker is back at it again, and this time he has his sights set on the U.S. Senate.

Known for his controversial antics and makeshift signs, Walker switched his party affiliation and announced a run against Senator Chris Coons in the 2020 Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.

Walker said he was considering a run against John Carney for Governor but scrapped those plans after realizing Senator Coons was “the biggest menace.”

“You can be guaranteed that I’m going to run against Chris Coons,” Walker said. “I was going to run against John Carney, but once I heard about Chris Coons and how much money he had taken from the big opioid makers that convinced me that the biggest menace was Chris Coons, not John Carney.”

Walker, who lost his bid for Congress to Lisa Blunt-Rochester after securing the Republican nomination in the 2018 midterm election, said he’s confident he can beat Sen. Coons because “his hands aren’t clean, he’s taken a lot of dirty money.”

“I’m very confident I can beat Senator Coons because his hands are not clean, he’s taken a lot of dirty money.” Walker said his signs will tell a story this time around. “They’re going to tell a story, they’re going to a story about Joe Biden, Chris Coons, and all of the corruption, the money.”
