Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel columnist Dan Bice explained Tuesday that Mitt Romney had no chance of winning Wisconsin in a general election if Republican Gov. Scott Walker is ousted from office.

“All of these elections are very much connected,” Bice, who has covered the Wisconsin GOP primary and recall campaign, said on MSNBC.

Walker, along with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch (R) and four Wisconsin Republican state senators will face recall elections in June. Democrats are hoping the elections bring about a political realignment following their loses in the 2010 elections.

“The Romney campaign has created a very large and elaborate infrastructure here, which I am sure Walker’s team will try to use for the recall in June,” Bice explained. “If Walker loses, there is almost no way that Romney is going to win this state. So everyone here realizes how interconnected these things are.”
