One possible 2016 presidential contender says there are many good Republicans who have entered the race. However, Governor Scott Walker told those attending the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma Thursday that he has yet to see a candidate who can “fight and win…the battles we need to move this country forward with common sense conservative reforms.”
Walker, who is not expected to formally announce his own plans about a presidential run until this summer, said many of the candidates who have announced so far have either proven they can win at the ballot box or have been “fighting the good fight” on conservative issues. However, Walker said “I have yet to see anyone in the field, or emerging field, who has done both.”
Walker helped kick off the conference in Oklahoma, where attendees will also hear from a long list of other Republican White House hopefuls. He was introduced by Republican Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin.
