Walker talks election strategy in Washington DC

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Governor Scott Walker told a conservative forum in Washington that Republicans need to attract "persuadable" voters by doing more to address their concerns -- like fixing the economy. Walker was the headliner at a meeting of the American Enterprise Institute, where he was interviewed by the co-author of his new book, Marc Thiessen. The Republican governor said voters are more interested in leaders who make bold promises and keep them -- instead of being swept up in partisan politics. That's how Walker explained why both he and Democratic President Obama attracted many of the same voters in recent years.

Walker said Obama's mistake was to base too many decisions on politics. In the end, he says a leader's policies have to work. Walker also addressed the 2016 presidential race, which he's thinking about entering. He repeated his recent comments that Republicans need to put up a governor with no ties to a federal government that voters have soured on.

Walker also expects Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee, calling her a product of Washington "for decades."
