WHEN YOU'RE A ONE ISSUE CANDIDATE YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO BAIL ON IT:

Scott Walker and Right to Work (WSJ, Jan. 12, 2015)

At his second inauguration last week, Mr. Walker told voters that prosperity comes "from empowering people to control their own lives and their own destinies through the dignity born from work." In the Badger State, he added, "we understand people create jobs, not the government."

He's right, which makes it that much stranger to watch Mr. Walker dodging the right-to-work challenge. In December, after Wisconsin Senate majority leader Scott Fitzgerald said he was interested in taking up a right-to-work bill, the Governor called it a "distraction." Then he told WKOW-TV "Capitol City Sunday" that despite the chatter about right-to-work momentum, "there's a lot of things that are going to keep the legislature preoccupied for a while," like taxes and education.

That may be, but Wisconsin needs an economic lift and right to work can help.
