Sarah Palin in Wisconsin: Walker 'Trying to Save Jobs, Pensions'

Spencer Platt/Getty Images (file)(MADISON, Wis.) -- Hundreds of Tea Party supporters gathered at the Wisconsin state capitol Saturday to hear from former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

“Hello Madison” Palin said, as she greeted the crowd. “You look good.”

A riled up Palin told the crowd that they are standing on the front lines in the battle for the country’s future. Earlier this year, Republican Gov. Scott Walker sparked a political uproar in Wisconsin when he enacted legislation with steep budget cuts and took away collective bargaining rights of public workers.

“This is where the line has been drawn in the sand and I am proud to stand with you today in solidarity,” Palin said.

Many Wisconsin workers and Democrats felt the legislation unfairly stripped union workers of their rights. Palin said that Walker is “not trying to hurt union members,” but “trying to save your jobs and your pensions.”
