Madison, Wis. – Republican Gov. Scott Walker joined the growing bipartisan call Wednesday for Democratic candidate Matt Flynn to drop out of the race for governor because of his past legal work defending the Milwaukee Archdiocese against priest abuse lawsuits.

Flynn remained defiant.

Walker, in a tweet, said Flynn’s “actions disqualify him from serving.” He called for the other seven Democratic candidates to join with him in agreement. Walker tweeted the message minutes after the Wisconsin Republican Party made the same plea to the Democratic candidates.

All of the other Democratic candidates, except political activist Mike McCabe, have pledged to support whoever wins the Aug. 14 Democratic primary.
