Slideshow: Gov. Scott Walker hugs Wisconsin border (and lots of supporters) in tiny Hudson

HUDSON, Wisc. — Showing the raw power of pure retail politics, Wisconsin GOP Governor Scott Walker made a sprint Saturday from Milwaukee to Stevens Point to Wausau to this small border town of 12,000 to rally supporters.

In a bid to avoid becoming only the third governor recalled in U.S. history, Walker visited St. Croix County for a rally with more than 200 Wisconsinites – but was overshadowed some by dozens of angry protesters stationed on the sidewalk along Pearson Street here in Hudson.

Gov. Walker was surprised by the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s presentation of a leadership award during Saturday’s rally. Read more about the role of faith in Wisconsin politics Tuesday as Will Mari takes a closer look for UW Election Eye.
