You can listen to the audio here.
-- GOP guv hopeful Mark Neumann went on Charlie Sykes’ show this morning to again close the door on the possibility of an independent bid for guv.
Neumann also declined to respond to sharp criticism from Scott Walker campaign manager Keith Gilkes, who wrote in an e-mail yesterday that Neumann has threatened to run as an independent if the Republican grassroots didn’t drop their support of Walker. Gilkes wrote in the letter that Neumann made a similar threat to “a member of our Congressional delegation,” though the letter does not identify who.
Neumann denied he made such a threat to either U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan or U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner as Sykes tried to pin him down on whether he’s ever suggested an independent bid in any conversations with GOP officials.
