Walker says trips to South Carolina, Florida, Nevada comingSubmitted: 01/28/2015
RACINE - Gov. Scott Walker says he's planning trips soon to the important 2016 presidential primary states of South Carolina, Nevada and Florida.


Walker told reporters in Racine on Wednesday that he wants to see if his message is resonating with voters around the country before he decides on whether to run for president.

Walker on Tuesday took the first formal step in a presidential run by creating a tax-exempt group that can raise unlimited amounts of money to help boost his effort.

Walker spoke to conservatives in Iowa last weekend and he plans a trip to New Hampshire in March. Walker says trips to the other early primary states aren't confirmed yet but are in the works.
