John Podhoretz says Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is an early frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.
“I just spent a week among people who are: 550 conservative and Republican voters who traveled on National Review magazine’s semi-annual cruise. The cruisers are consumed with politics. And overwhelmingly — and I mean no one else was even close — their favorite for 2016 is the governor of Wisconsin.”
“These NR readers don’t precisely match the GOP electorate, but they’re a pretty significant leading indicator. They are, to a person, conservative, and they know a great deal about the ways that conservative ideas and Republican politics interact — and clash.”
Meanwhile, Walker told the AP it’s “pretty obvious” that running for president is something he has to consider: “I spend a lot of time not just talking with people but praying about, thinking about with my family as well whether or not eventually that might be a call to run for the presidency.”Save to Favorites
