[Updated from 9:14 p.m. Wednesday] Where's our down-home Governor tonight? Sorry, protesting Menominee, who walked 150 miles through Polar Vortex weather to talk about the casino jobs he blew off. He's not home, that's for sure:
National Review editor Rich Lowry, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo and several other prominent media personalities attended a private dinner with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in Manhattan on Wednesday night, sources at the event told the On Media blog on Wednesday.
The dinner, which took place at the “21” Club in Manhattan, was hosted by economists Larry Kudlow (of CNBC), Arthur Laffer, and Stephen Moore. The Washington Post's Robert Costa reported on the dinner earlier tonight, citing Walker's effort to court the GOP’s anti-tax wing ahead of the 2016 Republican presidential primary. Kudlow, Laffer and Moore are all advocates for supply-side economics.
Roughly 60 people were in attendance, including: Rich Lowry and John Fund of the National Review; John Stossel and Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business Network, Bill Hemmer of Fox News; James Freeman of The Wall Street Journal editorial page; and Mort Zuckerman, the owner and publisher of the New York Daily News and the U.S. News & World Report. Our colleague Darren Samuelsohn was also in attendance.
Anyone still thinking Walker's number one priority is Wisconsin need only consult this map tracking his travels.
