Gov. Scott Walker visits the Granite State as he considers presidential run for 2016

CONCORD - The last time Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visited New Hampshire was in September 2012 when he was stumping for Mitt Romney during his presidential run.

Now, Walker is mulling over a run for the White House himself and has been labeled as an early front-runner by many.

He returned to New Hampshire this weekend to test the waters in the first in the nation primary state, which has been packed with potential candidates this week.

Walker's visit included a speech at Concord High School on Saturday where he spoke to a crowd of several hundred.

When asked what Americans are looking for in a president, Walker's answer was clear.

"I think what they want is leadership. Someone who is going to tell them what they're going to do and then go do that," Walker said.

NH1 News Special Correspondent Gail Huff sat down with Walker to discuss his visit the state and what's been on his mind leading up to a decision to run or not.

When Huff asked if people have been receptive Walker responded "The sense I get is that I visit NH is that people say I didn't agree with you on everything, but I want you to clear me. Look me in the eye and tell me what you're going to do, be bold about it, and then go out and do it".
