RIPON, WI –
Governor Scott Walker remains undecided on a 2016 presidential campaign, but one former Republican leader believes he has what it takes.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was in Ripon on Wednesday, speaking at Ripon College. We asked him what he thought about Walker as a presidential candidate.
“I believe that he has a real chance to be one of the finalists in becoming the Republican nominee.”
Gingrich was beat out by Mitt Romney in 2012, as he vied to become the next President of the United States. He was Speaker of the House under Clinton from 1995 to 1999, winning Time’s ‘Man of The Year’ in 1995.
“If you think it’s time for a generational break, and for totally new blood, I think that Walker’s going to be formidable,”
He continued to say Walker has his work cut out for him if he does decide to run.
“I don’t think it’s a gimme, we have probably the greatest depth of candidates in modern time.”
