As he prepares for an all-but-certain presidential campaign in 2016, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is saying even though he didn’t graduate college he’s got a kind of master’s degree — just not the traditional kind you and I might expect. “I’m like the majority of people in America,” Walker told Hugh Hewitt. “I’m someone who […]
