Walker supporter carrying gun causes stir


A man wearing a gun in a holster and a T-shirt that said "Scott Walker for President" caused a stir after he voted in a small western Wisconsin village.

Village of Merrillan Clerk Debra Green said Tuesday the man is a firm believer in the right to openly carry firearms. She says he came to the village hall to vote with a pistol in a holster, tied to his leg.

She says that made some poll workers "very uneasy." After voting he went across the street and was handing out yard signs supporting Walker. Green says the man left after he saw poll workers observing him.

Tuesday is Wisconsin's presidential primary and spring election for numerous local issues.

Merrillan has about 550 residents and is in Jackson County.
