Schiff Backs the Deficit Ranger

by Categorized: David Walker, Peter Schiff Date:

Peter Schiff, the broker and financial pundit who ran for U.S. Senate in 2010, is campaigning again.

\"schiffdebate1\"But this time, he\’s urging support for a fellow Republican: David Walker, who is running for lieutenant governor.

\”Dave and I share a concern regarding the current economic status, financial condition, and competitive posture of the State of Connecticut. The truth is: Connecticut ranks at or near the bottom of all 50 states in connection with a broad range of key economic, financial, and competitiveness categories,\’\’ Schiff wrote in an email blast to supporters.

Walker, whose Twitter handle is @DeficitRanger, served as U.S. Comptroller General from 1998 to 2008.

\”Dave is pursuing the office of lieutenant governor of Connecticut in order to help the next governor create a comeback in the Constitution State. He has over 40 years of public, private, and non-profit sector experience,\” Schiff said, as well as \”a proven track record of being able to bring Republicans, political independents, and reform-minded Democrats together to face the facts and solve serious problems.\”
