Former GOP Wisconsin Governor Weighs in on Party's Lame-Duck Power Grab
By Justin Wise
Former Wisconsin Gov. Scott McCallum (R) is calling for Gov. Scott Walker (R) to reject some of the measures the state legislature passed to limit incoming Democratic officials' authority.
“It appears completely political, (like) a power grab,” McCallum told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Saturday, before adding that Walker has the chance to avoid the “appearance of sour grapes."
McCallum, who served as governor from 2001-2003, noted that Walker should be "open and transparent and reach out in a very public fashion” to discuss the lame-duck legislation with incoming Gov. Tony Evers (D).
Evers defeated Walker in the Wisconsin gubernatorial race in November.
