Jim Reed: LaMalfa endorsed Walker?

Doug LaMalfa endorsed Scott Walker for president. What does Walker’s dropping out of the presidential race say about our congressman?

Doug has been in office for nearly three years and what are his accomplishments? He put his limited energy repeatedly into repealing Obamacare. He acknowledges that the most important thing that can be done to improve our lives in the North State is to improve the economy.

But what has Doug LaMalfa done to bring us that funding? Endorsing Walker suggests that damaging the unions that will benefit from infrastructure spending is his higher priority.
