Charlie Sykes: If Scott Walker Loses, It Will Show He ‘Couldn’t Survive Trump in 2018’

As Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) struggles against Democratic challenger Tony Evers in a tight race that will likely continue late into early Wednesday, Charlie Sykes appeared on MSNBC from Walker’s HQ.

“Give me the headline for tonight?” anchor Brian Williams asked.

“Well, the headline for tonight is that, you know, despite the lack of a blue wave around the country, in the upper midwest, Democrats are running the table,” Sykes analyzed. He noted the win for Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin and the bad showing so far for Walker.

Should Walker fall, Sykes said, “this would be a big pickup for Democrats.”

Williams asked Sykes what Walkers obituary will read if he loses to Evers.

“That he survived recalls, he survived protests, but he couldn’t survive Trump in 2018,” Sykes said.
