Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the Republican senators in the 2016 presidential contest may be "fighters," but they haven't accomplished anything in Washington.
The 47-year-old Republican governor draws a sharp contrast between the GOP's Washington-based presidential contenders and governors. Walker spoke in Utah, where 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney is hosting a private gathering with 2016 contenders and donors.
Walker encourages his Republican presidential rivals to have a civilized debate. He also calls himself "a winner" and says Republican senators "have yet to win anything and accomplish anything."
Walker is one of five Republican White House prospects scheduled to appear at the gathering on Saturday. The group includes two Republican senators — Marco Rubio of Florida and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
