Kathy Cramer, a political science professor and director of the Morgridge Center for Public Service, was interviewed by Wisconsin Eye about her book, The Politics of Resentment: Rural Consciousness in Wisconsin and the Rise of Scott Walker, published by The University of Chicago Press in April.
According to Cramer, Gov. Walker “was very strongly supported in the smaller communities around the state,” when he was running for the governor of Wisconsin. To many people living in rural Wisconsin, Walker was viewed as a “person who was standing up for them, as opposed to the liberal elite.”
Cramer is also an affiliate of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
