OKLAHOMA CITY (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker is praising Republican leaders in Oklahoma for pushing to reduce its state's income tax and encouraging them to stand by their conservative principles.
Walker is facing a recall election that was spurred by anger over his plan to eliminate collective bargaining rights for most public workers.
On Wednesday, Walker spoke to a crowd at a fundraiser for a conservative Oklahoma City think-tank. The crowd inside the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum gave Walker a standing ovation when Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin introduced him as the nation's "poster child" for taking on tough political battles.
Outside, a group of more than 200 union workers and protestors lined the street and expressed support for Walker's recall in Wisconsin.
Gov. Walker and five other Republican lawmakers face a recall election on June 5.
