Walker Calls Democrat Evers ‘Pathetic’ Over Cursing
Evers' Campaign had no Immediate Reaction to Walker's Comment
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Republican Gov. Scott Walker is calling Democratic challenger Tony Evers “pathetic” for using a curse word in his Democratic Party convention speech over the weekend.
Walker reacted on Twitter Monday to Evers’ comments.
Evers told about 1,300 convention attendees in a speech Friday night that he was “goddamn sick and tired of Scott Walker gutting our public schools, insulting our hard-working educators and destroying higher education in Wisconsin.”
Evers is state superintendent of schools and one of 10 Democrats running for the chance to take on Walker.
Walker says in his tweet that “It’s pathetic seeing what has become of Tony Evers. He used the Lord’s name in vain this weekend — apparently to look tough at the convention.”
Evers’ campaign had no immediate reaction to Walker’s comment.
