Gov. Walker issues warning to Wisconsin Republicans


Milwaukee (AP) -- Governor Scott Walker is telling Republican to "wake up" and the upcoming fall election is "going to be tougher than any we've faced so far."

Walker issued the warnings Saturday at the Wisconsin state party convention. He and a host of other Republicans are warning party activists that GOP policies enacted in recent years are in jeopardy if Democrats win in November.

Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel says "If there's a blue wave coming, our conservative reforms will be among the first thing to go."

Walker is running for a third term and Schimel is seeking a second. There are more than a dozen Democrats seeking the nomination to take on Walker. He says if a Democrat wins, Republicans are also likely to lose majorities in the state Legislature.
