Wisconsin’s Scott Walker offers to spring for fellow governors’ Harley training
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said on Tuesday he wants to spice up an upcoming gubernatorial conference with a group motorcycle ride — his treat.
According to the Associated Press, Walker offered to pay for his fellow governors to learn how to ride Harley Davidsons during the National Governors Association’s (NGA) meeting this August in Milwaukee, and said “several” of his colleagues have already agreed to learn.
“We’ve offered to have them have a riders’ ed course at the Harley Davidson dealer closets to their state capitol,” WISN-TV reported on Tuesday.
Walker did not specify if his picking up the tab for the training qualify as a campaign expense or a personal one.
The NGA, which includes all 50 of the nation’s governors, bills itself on its website as a bipartisan group that “promotes visionary state leadership, shares best practices and speaks with a collective voice on national policy.” Other events planned for the Aug. 2-4 meeting include batting practice at Milwaukee’s Miller Park prior to a game between the local Brewers and the Washington Nationals.
