Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says it's time for fellow Republicans to "put up or shut up" now that the party controls the White House, both houses of Congress and more than 30 governorships and state legislatures across the country. That's more than at any point in the history of the Republican history, according to the bipartisan National Conference of State Legislatures.
Walker, who on Tuesday was elected to serve as the 2017 chairman of the Republican Governors Association, responded to his party's sweeping victory on Fox News' "Your World With Neil Cavuto."
"The Republican Party is alive and well, and it all began in the states," he said, adding, "It's put up or shut up time. We've got to go big, and we've got to go bold, and we've got to do it early."
Walker said he's excited about the possibility of transforming the country "for the long haul," and thinks Republicans will be "overwhelmingly" united while doing so.
