The first GOP debate of the 2016 presidential season is over. Ten of the 17 Republican hopefuls took to the stage last night in Cleveland in a debate that sometimes saw testy exchanges between the candidates. 

Not surprisingly, Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were recurring themes throughout the night.  And so were very pointed questions.

Gov. Walker has been outspoken on the fact that he does not believe there should be exceptions for abortion. One of the first questions he got was whether he would let a woman die to save the life of an unborn child.

Over the course of the budget process that was recently completed, questions were asked about whether Governor Walker’s presumptive Presidential campaign affected the negotiation process.

Now that Walker’s campaign is no longer just presumptive, more questions are being asked about the campaign’s implications for public policy in Wisconsin.

When Gov. Scott Walker announces his run for the White House next Monday, his supporters will relish the chance to cheer their candidate. Meanwhile, his critics will be just as eager to share their views.

Fewer than half of Wisconsin voters were happy with the job Walker is doing as governor in the most recent Marquette Law School Poll.

Earl P. Holt, leader of the Council of Conservative Citizens has reportedly donated $3,500 to Gov. Walker since 2011. The alleged racist manifesto that Dylann Roof created - the young white man accused of murdering nine black people at a church in Charleston last week, credits the group with influencing his thoughts.

Gov. Walker's campaign says he will donate the money to charity.
