Scott Walker: We Would Fight For Every State, Except 'Maybe Florida'

By    |   Tuesday, 26 May 2015 05:37 PM

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, ready to announce next month if he’ll run for the Republican presidential nomination, promises that if he commits to a campaign, he’ll be in it to win it in every state — except for Florida’s primary.

Voters, he told the Laura Ingraham’s radio show Tuesday, "want someone who can fight, and win," including the "really big battles that matter."

"Our message… would play just about anywhere out there," he said. "If we chose to get in, I don’t think there’s a state out there that we wouldn’t play in."

But he quickly added:

"I mean, other than maybe Florida where [former Florida Gov.] Jeb Bush and [Florida Republican Sen.] Marco Rubio are, at least in some of the polls, essentially tied, and they’re going to eat up a good amount of that financial advantage that Gov. Bush is going to have.

Remember [Florida Gov.] Rick Scott spent something like a 100 million dollars running for governor there last year."

Instead, Walker says he’ll be concentrating on the first three nominating contests in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

"I love Iowa," the Badger State executive declared. "I lived there as a kid. … we’ll make an announcement in about a month from now… If we get in as a candidate, we’re going to make a strong play in Iowa."

Yet Walker wouldn’t commit to attending the Iowa GOP straw poll on Aug. 8, where event dropouts Bush and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee have fueled speculation about the future of the political staple.
