Scott Walker First Wisconsin Governor in 64 Years Not to Have a College Degree

Here's an article from July 31, 2010 from The Milwaukee Journal reports:
If elected to the state's top job this fall, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker would become the first Wisconsin governor in 64 years who doesn't have a college degree, breaking the mold of the current crop of governors nationally.

That's either an important symbolic shortcoming or an irrelevant distinction, depending on whom you ask.

It's cropping up a bit in the Republican primary for governor, and it would put a personal dimension to an issue he would handle as governor - getting more college students to finish their degrees and stay in Wisconsin.
Scott Walker: hero.
