Walker plans to give speeches, advocate for conservatives

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he plans to give speeches across the country advocating for conservative issues like returning powers to the states and tax reform.

Walker lost is re-election bid in November and leaves office on Monday, replaced by Democrat Tony Evers.

Walker announced his general plans for the future in a New Year’s message Tuesday.

In the email, Walker says he will remain in Wisconsin but will be involved in a number of organizations and join a speakers’ bureau to broaden his scope and talk about “a federal government grown out-of-control.” Walker says he will speak about “new methods to articulate a conservative message,” including reforming the tax code and lowering taxes on “hard-working people.”

Walker says he will also work to help re-elect President Donald Trump.
