Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker tells Newsmax TV that his GOP presidential rivals are fighters, but he is the one who is actually able to win those fights.

"There are fighters, many of whom are in Washington fighting the good fight against the president, but they have yet to win those fights," Walker said Monday on "Newsmax Prime."

"There are many others, governors, others who have been – again, people I've worked with who are good at winning elections and re-elections, but they haven't taken on, consistently taken on the fights of late that really matter," Walker told host J.D. Hayworth.

Walker says he is unique because he has done both.

"We've fought and we have won," he said. "We didn't just win three elections in four years in a blue state, we actually won the battles, the commonsense conservative reforms that people care about all across this country."

Walker said he also represents a "new fresh face" from outside Washington as opposed to the Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Clinton, he said, "embodies Washington and … not only has she not gotten things done in the Senate or as secretary of state, arguably if you look today in the world, every place that Hillary Clinton has touched is more messed up today than it was before she and the president took office."

Walker said Ronald Reagan's Eleventh Commandment not to speak ill of another Republican has not gone out the window. Though one of his unpaid volunteers did come under fire for calling current GOP front-runner Donald Trump a "DumbDumb" in an invitation to contributors, Walker stressed that he and his paid staff have always deferred to the other candidates themselves when asked to comment on them.

Many members of the media say they dislike the fighting in Washington, but they want it to happen, Walker said.

"They encourage it, particularly Republican-on-Republican," he said. "What you're going to hear from us is talking about what we're for and what makes us unique and how I'm the best candidate to take on Hillary Clinton."

In response to Trump saying that Wisconsin is doing horribly under Walker's leadership, the governor pointed to the $3.6 billion budget deficit he inherited and turned into a surplus and the rising graduation rates, school test scores, pensions and more.
