Scott Walker Invokes Ghost of Lincoln to Justify Brokered Convention

Remember, Abraham Lincoln won in Chicago in 1860 because of an open convention. He was not the front-runner when he came in. In fact, he wasn’t even near the front until several ballots in. That gives us hope. Our first Republican president, and arguably one of our best, was someone who came in through an open process.

— Gov. Scott Walker (R), quoted by the Washington Post.
