HARTFORD, Conn. (WSAU-Wheeler) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s visit to Connecticut is generating some political heat.

That state’s Democratic party is calling him a “goon” and is using Walker’s presence at the Republican’s biggest annual event to raise some funding of its own. Walker speaks in Connecticut tomorrow to start a busy week of campaigning. Walker is on the road this week to build name recognition as he considers a run for president in the 2016 campaign.

Iowa is the first caucus state for that election and Walker will speak Thursday to Republicans in Polk County. Before that, Walker makes a stop in New York City at the legendary “21” Club for a Republican fundraiser Tuesday.
