Gov. Scott Walker's now denying the results in Ohio have any bearing on Wisconsin, but when a prankster pretending to be David Koch called his phone Walker spilled the beans about connecting with other anti-union, Republican governors.

Gov. Scott Walker’s now denying the results in Ohio have any bearing on Wisconsin, but back in February when a prankster pretending to be David Koch called his phone, Walker spilled the beans about connecting with other anti-union, Republican governors:

WALKER: That’s all they wanna talk is what are you doing to help in the governor in Wisconsin. Next I talked to Kasich every day, you know John’s got to stand firm in Ohio. I think we can do the same thing with Rick Scott in Florida, I think Snyder if he got a little more support could probably do that in Michigan. We start going down the list, you know, there’s a lot of us new governors that got elected to do something, big.

CALLER:  You’re the first domino.

WALKER:  Yep. This is our moment.
