Hours before the polls close in Wisconsin’s recall election, Gov. Scott Walker (R) is seeking to rally supporters -- by reminding them of the anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s death.

“President Reagan died on June 5, 2004,” Walker tweeted early Tuesday evening. “Let’s win one for the Gipper!”

Invoking Reagan on the campaign trail is hardly anything new. But using the anniversary of the former president’s death to encourage voters to go to the polls would seem to be something of an unorthodox tactic in the eleventh hour of a competitive race.
