MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker’s top adviser says the Republican is running for president as someone who can cross political lines and bring together a polarized electorate.

Walker adviser Rick Wiley said Tuesday in a speech organized by the political website Wispolitics.com that Walker’s ability to win the 2012 recall election shows he can bring people together.

Wiley says, “I think he is running as a uniter.”

Anger over Walker’s policies in 2011 led to more than 900,000 people signing petitions to force a recall election, which Walker won in 2012. The most recent Marquette University Law School poll released in April showed Walker with a 41 percent approval rating.

Wiley also says feels good about the $32 million Walker’s side has raised so far, saying that meets the campaign’s target.
