Scott Walker event will be open to reporters after all
A Seattle event featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be open to reporters after all, organizers informed The Seattle Times over the weekend.
A spokeswoman for the Washington Policy Center said ”things have changed” and the conservative think tank’s annual dinner Thursday will allow in the media. The spokeswoman, Lisa Shin, had previously said that Walker and the event’s other headliner, prominent Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson, had requested that no journalists attend.
It would have been the only such press prohibition in recent memory, Shin had said.
Shin also reiterated that the only organization raising money at the dinner will be the Washington Policy Center. Walker’s office had called it a “campaign event” for the governor, who is up for re-election in 2014 and is also considered a candidate for president in 2016.
The dinner starts at 7 p.m.
