I had the pleasure over the last 48 hours of meeting with several of the nation's leading Republican Governors and listening to their stories of impact. These stories were very inspiring. It turns out many of these governors are former friends, colleagues, fellow veterans, or prior clients.
These great Governors are all eager to help us defeat Gov "Thomas the Tax Engine" Wolf by visiting the Commonwealth down the road.
With Governor Doug Burgum of North Dakota, a fellow alumnus of McKinsey & Company
With Governor Rick Scott of Florida, a former client of mine when I was at McKinsey. Rick's Dad was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division and participated in all 5 of the Division's WWII Airborne operations. God Bless him!
With Governor Eric Greitens of Missouri, a former Navy Seal and great fellow veteran
With Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi, a former law enforcement officer and first responder
With Governors Mary Fallin of Oklahoma and Matt Bevin of Kentucky. Governor Fallin and I exchanged stories about Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where I was stationed as a young Army Officer.
