Wisconsin Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker went after the media following CNN’s GOP debate, telling radio host Glenn Beck on Thursday that members of the political press were going to spin the debate as a win for Carly Fiorina “no matter what.”
“I think going in, we knew the narrative no matter what was going to happen was that they were going to say Carly had a big night, no matter what, and obviously they said that,” Walker said. “I think the other impression was — the feedback I got from folks, not just the press but from across the country we talked to, was a frustration that there wasn’t more talk … about issues.”
Walker, who once sat high atop the polls in Iowa but whose campaign has since faltered as Donald Trump rose to prominence among conservatives, also criticized CNN for “trying to pit people against each other for ratings, instead of talking about the issues.”
“That’s what’s wrong with this campaign, we’re not actually talking about issues, we’re talking about personalities,” Walker said.
Prior to the debate, moderator Jake Tapper stated that his goal was to craft questions that force the candidates to distinguish themselves from one another.
