Walker: We May Not Know GOP Nominee Until Close to Convention
Associated Press
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday that with such a crowded and well qualified field of candidates, it's possible the GOP nominee may not be known until close to the Republican convention.

On a stop in Philadelphia, where Walker attended two fundraising events, the Wisconsin Republican said that some states that hold later primaries, like Pennsylvania, which votes in April, may play a more deciding role in the nomination process than they typically do, Politico is reporting.

For that reason, Walker said that "we're not just running an early-state campaign."

He is just finishing up a tour of the four earliest voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — following the announcement of his White House bid. But he has also made stops in Chicago and Philadelphia.

"We think with the quality of the field it’s very likely that even states like [Pennsylvania] later in April will play a role," he told Politico. "It may go as far as — it could be close to the convention before we know who the ultimate nominee is."

Walker's advice for other candidates, if they want to win, is to start showing up in Pennsylvania now, which is a traditional swing state.

"If you want to make a case in November of 2016 that you care about people's votes, you can't just show up a couple months before," he said. "You've got to make the case early on."
