RACING TO THE BOTTOM:

Fading in the polls, Scott Walker aims to attract Trump voters (Jenna Johnson and Sean Sullivan August 18, 2015, Washington Post)
   
Scott Walker has sought to reassure jittery donors and other supporters this week that he can turn around a swift decline in the polls in Iowa and elsewhere by going on the attack and emphasizing his conservatism on key issues.

In a conference call, one-on-one conversations and at a Tuesday lunch, the Wisconsin governor and darling of anti-union conservatives told backers that the campaign is shifting to a more aggressive posture and will seek to tap into the anti-establishment fervor fueling the rise of Donald Trump and other outsider candidates.

Abandoning the one thing he has going for him, that he's governed a swing state.
