While Walker hasn’t formally announced his bid for the presidency in 2016, Walker said the committee will help him develop ideas that he thinks will transform America.
“Part of setting a committee up like this is to talk about the ideas that I think will help transform America, to put the power back in the hands of the American people,” Walker said. “What we’re trying to do is figure out if that’s a message that resonates with others.”
According to a story in the Washington Post, Walker spoke at the Iowa Freedom Summit and at a “gathering in California hosted by the billionaire Koch brothers and a stopover in Denver for additional fundraising.”
Walker’s speech comes at a time when several state Legislators – Republicans and Democrats – have voiced disappointment in this decision to kill a Hard Rock restaurant and casino project in Kenosha, and have written him a letter asking him to reconsider the decision.
