SCOTT WALKER’S NOTE­WOR­THY RIDE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Don­ald Trump may show up to his cam­paign events in his own 757 air­craft em­bla­zoned with a per­sonal logo. But Wis­con­sin Gov. Scott Walker may trump Mr. Trump for the flashiest ride. Mr. Walker took a bo­da­cious mo­tor­cy­cle ride through New Hamp­shire over the La­bor Day week­end — right through all 10 coun­ties.

The can­di­date, a vet­eran Har­ley rider, makes quite an im­pres­sion on two wheels. Har­ley David­son is, af­ter all, head­quar­tered in Wis­con­sin. Two years ago, Mr. Walker him­self donned black leather and avi­a­tor glasses and per­son­ally es­corted a se­lec­tion of the fab­u­lous bikes to China, roar­ing into Shang­hai be­fore a de­lighted crowd. The gover­nor made the sale; China now has its first big Har­ley shop.

Ear­lier this year, Mr. Walker joined forces with Sen. Joni Ernst for a Har­ley ride through the Iowa coun­try­side, fol­lowed by a pig roast. Both press and public were charmed. This may be some­thing that even the master show­man Mr. Trump can’t du­pli­cate. But then again, one never knows.
