Gov. Walker talks with Center reporter Bill Lueders about his regrets over the past year, his approach to conflict, his thoughts on out-of-state money that has flooded Wisconsin’s politics, and how he got the yearbook nickname “Desperado.”
The interview comes at the end of a year of extraordinary turbulence in Wisconsin that began when Walker introduced a plan to strip most collective bargaining rights from public workers. Walker, whose opponents are trying to recall him, says he wishes he’d sold his changes better beforehand — but stands by them.
