Conservatives expect Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker to wrap up his state’s budget debate this week. But the budget clash that erupted in Wisconsin which pitted public-sector unions and their supporters against fiscal conservatives represented by the Tea Party movement may signify the beginning of a policy battle that will play out in states across the country.
Ned Ryun and his brother Drew Ryun are gearing American Majority up to be able to help the states that are expected to follow in Wisconsin’s footsteps, if local conservative groups need the help. Next up, they say, is Ohio. After that, they said to expect policy battles against public-sector unions in Pennsylvania, Florida and then maybe even New York. New York would be an interesting win for the Tea Party movement because the governor there, Andrew Cuomo, is a Democrat.
