DANA POINT, California -- Governor Scott Walker took his campaign for president to California this weekend -- taking part in a special forum put on by the billionaire Koch brothers in Dana Point.
The Koch brothers and their network of donors are preparing to spend $890 million to influence elections in 2016, so it makes sense that several of the GOP candidates were in attendance for the event.
On Saturday, August 1st, Governor Walker was asked how much money is too much money.
"In the end, money doesn't win elections. Ideas do. We raised $80 million in the four years we had to run for governor in the state of Wisconsin. I think the other side spent something like $100 million against us. And we won because people saw that we could take power out of the hands of the big government special interests and put it firmly in the hands of the hardworking taxpayers," Walker said.
One big issue discussed during the forum was abortion. Governor Walker took a conservative position on the issue.
"In our state, we are ahead of the curve. Four-and-a-half years ago, we defunded Planned Parenthood, but we put it into women's health, and places like public health departments, so it's not controversial. I think the same thing should happen for America," Governor Walker said.
Governor Walker is expected to make the cut for the first Republican presidential debate.
It will be held next Thursday, August 6th and broadcast on FOX News Channel.
