MADISON, Wisconsin- The Governor of the State of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, spoke with Iowans last week in a telephone conference call about a possible run for President. Speaking from Madison Wisconsin he shared how he had been elected, survived a recall, and was re-elected amid opposition on a national level.
“They brought bodies and resources, threw everything they could,” said Walker. “Last year I was the number 1 target in America, they were afraid if I got elected again, it would show if that could happen there, it could happen anywhere.”
Late last month Governor Mitt Romney announced he would withdraw from Presidential consideration. In his statement he mentioned some unknown candidate not yet known on the national scene could win the White House. One caller asked Walker if Romney was referring to him?
Walker said “Romney is a good and decent man, I talked to him Friday after his announcement.” He did not say Romney was talking about him, but did note that he and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida are about the same age.
“If we’re gonna defeat Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, if we’re taking on a name from the past we can’t have a name from the past, we need a name from the future,” said Walker.
Walker took calls from several Iowa towns, and talked about growing up and living in Plainfield, Iowa when he was young. The Wisconsin Governor said he would be holding more telephone town hall meetings, and indicated he would be visiting Iowa again.
