Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, dismissing the possibility that sequestration could bring dark clouds over his state.

"If I was the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, I'd probably be freaked out," Walker said, referring to that state's huge defense presence.

"But we don't have big military bases (and) our military contractors have already started to account for this."
