Report: Gov. Walker's presidential fundraising future uncertain at best

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It appears uncertain at best whether Governor Scott Walker will get the campaign money he needs to win the presidency in 2016. 

The Associated Press says Walker is among a group of Republican hopefuls courting major donors to Romney's failed 2012 White House bid.  And according to a report Monday morning, many Romney donors want to shy away from Walker because of the governor's criticisms of the way Romney ran his campaign a year ago. 

That, of course, could change with 38 months to go until the next presidential contest.

The AP notes that it's not too early for all the possible Republican hopefuls to start courting large donations -- even though some, like Walker and Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan, are busy with re-election bids for their current offices in 2014. 

Walker and Ryan are both expected to attend a September 23rd fundraising event at the home of senior Romney donor Woody Johnson, who owns the NFL's New York Jets. 

Romney himself recently said that only one or two Republicans have a legitimate shot to win the White House in 2016. He did not name names. 

At a recent New Hampshire GOP fundraiser, Romney urged Republicans to, "stay smart" by backing candidates who have the best chance of winning.
