MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ Scott Walker says he is focusing his dimming presidential campaign on the first-to-vote Iowa caucuses, after a second GOP debate where he fought for attention but had little screen time.
The Wisconsin governor told MSNBC following Wednesday’s debate, “We’re putting all our eggs in the basket of Iowa.”
Walker’s campaign manager said in a message on Twitter after the debate that it was “ridiculous” Walker was asked only two questions during the nearly 3-hour contest. Walker asserted himself early on, taking on front-runner Donald Trump by saying, “We don’t need an apprentice in the White House. We have one right now.” Trump hosted NBC’s reality show “The Apprentice.”
Walker faded into the pack of 11 candidates after that.
He’s scheduled to campaign in Iowa this weekend.
