Walker says Romney not best GOP candidate in 2016

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says "it's pretty hard to make an argument" for Mitt Romney to be president in 2016.

Walker was asked Thursday about Romney's exploration of a presidential bid. Walker is also taking a serious look at running for president.

Walker says he thinks Romney would have been a good president, but "it's pretty hard to make an argument about going forward when you're arguing about people and ideas from the past."

Walker says the best way for Republicans to counter arguments of possible Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is to "have a fresh face with new ideas to move the party and ultimately the country."
