Washington, D.C. - On Friday,  Governor Scott Walker (R) who won reelection in a recall bid last year indicated he will most likely be one of the early candidates to declare his bid for president in 2016. During the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Walker admitted he is not ruling out a bid for the White House.
In an interview with Politico about his ambition to run for president, Walker said, "Would I ever be (interested)? Possibly. I guess the only thing I'd say is I'm not ruling it out...For me, it's really a measure of what I've accomplished and what more I could accomplish if I was in a different position."
Walker also couldn't determine, if elected governor in 2014 for a second term, he would actually finish his term.
The GOP conservative convention highlight is that attendees were overwhelming divided on issues, but most support the core principles of the Republican Party. 
Most voters see the GOP conservatives as anti-everything, according to former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R). "We're associated with being anti-everything," Bush said. "Way too many people believe that Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker. Many voters are simply unwilling to choose our candidates because those voters feel unloved, unwanted, and unwelcome in our party."
U.S.Senator Marco Antonio Rubio (R-FL) another potential 2016 presidential candidate failed to address immigration reform at the convention. Most GOP conservatives oppose a path to citizenship for nearly 13 million undocumented immigrants and an additional 6 million immigrants composed of family members who would like to immigrate to the U.S. 
Immigrants seeking a better life would like to escape poverty from a lack of jobs in Mexico, including insecurity, 10's of thousands of homicides resulting from feuding drug cartels around the country and President Enrique Peña Nieto's government corruption at the local, state and federal level.
