GREENVILLE, South Carolina – Gov. Scott Walker, likely GOP presidential candidate, said that, as Governor of Wisconsin, “We did some pretty big things.”

Walker touted that he lowered the state’s unemployment rate and that he passed pro-second amendment legislation as well as voter identification laws. “The reason I tell you that all here is not to brag — well not much,” he jested. Walker listed his accomplishments in Wisconsin, hinting that he could make the same changes nationally.

The Governor spoke about the importance of national security and safety for Americans. “National security is something you hear about,” said Walker, adding, “Safety is something you feel.”

He predicted that there would be a terror attack on American soil in the future.

“I want a leader who is willing to take the fight to them before they take the fight to us,” he said.
