Actor Chuck Norris is lending his voice in an effort to keep Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in office.
Walker is facing a tough race against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) in the recall election on Tuesday. The election is said to be in a dead heat, with some polls suggesting Walker with a slight lead. Last week, former President Bill Clinton campaigned with Barrett in Milwaulkee.
Norris wrote a column for the WorldNetDaily outlining why Walker is the best choice for Tuesday’s election:
“Wisconsin Democrats, Washington elite and insiders, and liberal special interests have joined together to fight for the recall of Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin in Tuesday’s election. But last Friday, when I saw them also send in the big guns, former President Bill Clinton himself, against Gov. Walker, I knew I had to enter the ring, too.”
“Walker’s recall is not just about Wisconsin; it is about national reform. It’s about living within our means. It’s about taking back our republic. It is about saving our nation and posterity, one election and state at a time.”
“Ronald Reagan was right, ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.'”
Norris has been an outspoken conservative, most recently throwing his support behind Newt Gingrich in the GOP primary
