It’s been two weeks and two days since Scott Walker suspended his presidential campaign, and the former GOP contender – who was once leading the polls in Iowa and gaining early support from the likes of the Koch brothers – is settling back into his day job as governor of Wisconsin.
According to Twitter, he’s been busy, but leading a very different life than he had before dropping out of the race on Sept. 21. Here’s a look at Walker’s doings since returning to America’s Dairyland:
Met the World Dairy Expo’s 2015 Cow of the Year:
Last week, Walker attended the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis., and posed for pictures with Hilda, winner of the 2015 Cow of the Year award. The Expo, which lasted six days and is an annual Wisconsin event, boasts exhibits, classes and of course, dairy cattle shows.
Announced Wisconsin’s Christmas Tree Theme for this year:
On Friday, Walker also announced the theme for his state’s 2015 National Christmas Tree Display: Wisconsin sports.
“It’s always a lot of fun to see what Wisconsin artists and youths come up with every year for our National Christmas Tree,” Walker said in a statement. “We look forward to selecting the artist and school that helps us to decorate the tree each year, and this year’s theme of Wisconsin Sports is one that is very near and dear to the hearts of many Wisconsinites.”
Cheered for the Badgers:
Walker has a lot more time for Wisconsin sports these days. He’s cheered from the stands at two Badgers games since he left the campaign trail.
…And the Packers:
Walker visited Lambeau Field (the home field of the Green Bay Packers) on Sept. 28 and met with retired Green Bay running back Dorsey Levens.
