Gov. Scott Walker told reporters following a speech about his interest in becoming president and forming a committee called Our American Revival at the Wisconsin Apprenticeship Summit at the Johnson Foundation at Wingspread in Wind Point today, according to a story by the Journal Times.

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.
