Walker Skips Out On The Daily Grind

Prefers being flattered in North Carolina than confronting paltry job growth in Wisconsin.

BURLINGTON GOP gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory on Tuesday embraced Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who has become a hero in conservative circles because of his battles with organized labor.

Barnstorming across the state with Walker, McCrory declared that “there was no greater role model” than Walker and that he would bring the same kind of strong leadership qualities and pro-growth policies to North Carolina.
"Pro-growth policies?"

The facts in Wisconsin are far from impressive, according to regular Journal Sentinel tracking:
In an update, the newspaper has this to say about Scott Walker's core campaign promise to create 250,000 jobs in one term:

The [Federal] monthly survey shows 500 fewer jobs in August than when 2012 began. That puts the rough total of jobs created since Walker took office at 27,311. That leaves about 222,689 jobs to go, with a little more than two years left in his term.
