Walker defends record, touts success at event


Gov. Scott Walker continues to use the release of his book "Unintimidated" to tout the leadership of governors as the future of the Republican Party, talk up his own political victories and outline a platform that could be testing the waters for a 2016 presidential run.

Walker hit on all those themes at a Thursday event before a friendly crowd at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C.

Walker was quizzed about his book by co-author Marc Thiessen, a former speech writer for President George W. Bush.

Walker faces re-election next year and hasn't said whether he will run for president in 2016. But he's been outspoken in his belief that the next president should be a current or former governor who can run against business as usual in Washington.
