Gov. Walker compares himself to Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre when discussing Trump's attacks

MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker is feeling so good about the role he played in Ted Cruz's victory in Wisconsin that he's comparing himself to two of the greatest quarterbacks in Green Bay Packers' history.

Walker says Donald Trump's decision to attack his record as governor is like someone going to Lambeau Field and 'taking a whack' at Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers or retired great Brett Favre.

The Republican governor was commenting Wednesday in an interview on Milwaukee's WTMJ radio. Cruz won Wisconsin on Tuesday by 13 points over Trump.

Walker's approval rating his above 80 percent among Wisconsin Republicans, nearly double what it is among all residents. Trump criticized Walker's record while campaigning in Wisconsin.

Walker says like going after his record, attacking Rodgers or Favre "just would not have worked."
