Veteran pollster says Scott Walker 'just what doctor ordered' in run for presidency

MADISON (AP) — A veteran Republican pollster says Gov. Scott Walker is the perfect candidate to run for president.

Ed Goeas spoke Wednesday at the state chamber of commerce's annual business day event. Goeas is president and CEO of The Tarrance Group and was recently hired by Walker to serve as a senior adviser.

Goeas says while midterm elections are about the past, presidential elections are always about the future. And he says Walker "is just what the doctor ordered in terms of the future of the country."

He says voters are looking for a candidate who advocates for reform, is focused and has consistent principles. Goeas says the Republican field, with many candidates in their 40s like Walker, is a "very nice contrast" with likely Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
