Following news this week that that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is eyeing another bid for the White House in 2016, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is arguing that the party needs to take a different approach next year.
Speaking to reporters in Madison, Walker, who is also exploring a run, said he thinks Romney is a “good man” and would have made a good president. However, he said that “it’s pretty hard to make an argument about going forward, when you’re arguing about people and ideas from the past.”
The governor added that “the best way to counter what’s likely to be a nominee, in that of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is to have a fresh face with new ideas to move the party and ultimately the country forward.”
