And the Governor rushes out a statement that Sykes read suggesting Walker is still looking for a deal.
This is what I was writing about last night:
I would predict the following from the Fitzgerald/Walker Republican camp:
* Participation in an amped-up PR strategy coordinated by the mining company, the WMC, friendly unions and the Governor that will distort a false jobs vs. the environment dichotomy and turn it against the bill's opponents.
* Threats by the company to take their mining plan elsewhere.
* More visibility by the Governor - - who wants a win on the bill because he, too, is facing a recall election, and the possibility of more bad employment data later this week and through the spring.
