Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker received a warm welcome from members of the New Hampshire Republican Party Saturday. During his speech in Concord, Walker talked about the importance of returning education control to the state and local level, cutting federal taxes, and stressed the need for the United States to take a more active role in going after Islamic extremists abroad.
Walker carried on with recent comments he’s made about the threat of terrorism against the US and the potential for violence to be headed to America. The governor said “we need to go to whatever length is required to make sure we eradicate radical Islamic terrorism where it’s at, before it washes up.”
Walker stopped short though of saying if he would send troops overseas. He said “I’m not proposing to engage full-scaled boots on the ground, but I’m not taking that off the table, because I think we need to be clear what our objective is…and our objective has to be a generational act to make sure that we eradicate radical Islamic terrorism before it comes to our shores.”
Walker’s stop in the Granite State is just the latest of several high profile speeches the governor has made across the country, as he continues to explore a possible 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
