Gov. Scott Walker says he is "ready" for four more years as governor.

Walker got a standing ovation at Saturday's Republican Party convention when he said "I am ready to help move Wisconsin forward for four more years."

Democrats are still searching for a top tier challenger to run against Walker. A number of possible candidates are considering it, while some high profile office holders have passed on a run.

Walker spoke after his son, Alex Walker, also addressed convention attendees. The younger Walker was graduating Saturday from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which led to the governor speaking earlier than normal.

Walker is touting his record as governor and the lowest state unemployment rate since 2000. Democrats say the state has underperformed under Walker and a change in leadership is needed.
