The embattled Wisconsin governor gave a rare interview on the topic of the upcoming recall election to the Christian Broadcasting Network. A difficult moment that's part of God's plan?

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker rarely talks to the press about the recall election that could end his governorship in June, but the Christian Broadcasting Network published parts of an interview with him today in which he describes the recall as all part of God's plan for his family:

It's just really prayer. It's the prayers that we have as a family, that we have individually, and the prayers that people tell us about. And those that we don't even hear about, but we feel people all around our state and really all around the country, that people go out of their way to lift us up, and it's just, it has been so amazing to us, and really as a family, I think it has made us stronger.

We realize that all this is just a temporary thing and God's got a plan for us that, who knows where it might be, beyond just serving as Governor of this state, but if we stay true to that, there's always comfort.
