Governor to deliver State of the State address at 7 p.m.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is putting the final touches on his 2015 State of the State address. The governor will address the state from the Capitol building in Madison on January 13, 2015, at 7:00 p.m.
Many from around the country will be paying attention to this year's speech due to Governor Walker's potential 2016 Presidential run. It will be the Governor's last State of the State address before he has to officially declare whether he's making a run for the White House in 2016. Governor Walker's Presidential bid got a boost after the New York Times posted an article saying Walker is in the best position to challenge Jeb Bush for the Republican Presidential nomination. The New York Times article said Walker's successful Act 10 battle against public employee unions is a big reason why he should be considered above heavyweights like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
Governor Walker did admit to exploring the idea of running for president in 2016. He said he remains committed to leading Wisconsin, and will unveil what he as planned for the state during this year's State of the State address.
