TheDC Interview: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on budget-reform success, GOP field

Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker recently addressed conservative activists at the Young America’s Foundation West Coast Leadership Conference at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. Through the courtesy of YAF, The Daily Caller was given the opportunity to ask Walker several questions during a videotaped Q-and-A session.

Walker explained that his controversial budget reforms passed earlier this year to much liberal fury “are working.”

“The biggest thing we learned is that we’re doing the right thing,” he said.

“While other states saw massive lay-offs, they saw massive shut down of services, we were largely able to avoid that in Wisconsin because our reforms are working.”

Walker also discussed his policy priorities moving forward, whether he would consider running for president in 2016, and his thoughts about endorsing a presidential hopeful during the Republican primary process.
