What Republicans Should Learn from Wisconsin

The Los Angeles Times notes that Wisconsin and the state's "embattled governor" Scott Walker (R) should serve as a warning for the Republican presidential candidates of the "danger of lurching too far to the right in a presidential battleground state."

"The prominence of divisive social issues -- rather than a tight focus on jobs and the economy -- in the race for the Republican presidential nomination has delighted Democrats looking ahead to November... On Saturday, Romney plans to join Santorum and Newt Gingrich in Waukesha at a Faith and Freedom Coalition forum. The gathering of Wisconsin conservatives will be fraught with temptation for the presidential candidates to offer Republican primary voters still more of what will likely cause trouble for the party's nominee in the fall."
