Walker says voters want a reformer for president, says super PACs not 'be all, end all'

MILWAUKEE -- Gov. Scott Walker told an audience at a Wall Street Journal panel discussion this morning voters are frustrated with Washington, D.C., and in the end, are looking for a candidate who will be able to deliver on the promises made.

Most voters want to see the size of government reduced, he said, but they want what is left to be effective. He encouraged candidates to “show that the 'R' next to their name doesn’t just stand for Republican -- it stands for reformer.”

Walker said that while a Super PAC is likely something a candidate cannot get by without in the current environment, it's not the “be all, end all.” Without naming anyone, Walker noted other candidates have had larger Super PACs than he did and are still struggling.

“The number one thing that wins elections is whether or not you can connect with voters,” Walker said.

“If you make that connection, then a Super PAC can help you amplify that connection. But a Super PAC can't make that for you.”

Walker has regularly rebuffed questions from state reporters about his presidential campaign, referring them to his comments at a Sept. 21 news conference when he dropped out of the race.

Walker told the breakfast he decided to suspend his presidential campaign when he could no longer see a clear path to the nomination.

“We just looked at all these things together, looked at where we were headed, and said unfortunately we didn't see a path to get to the nomination and said its better off if the voters have a more narrow field to look at,” Walker said.
