Wis. Gov: Long Primary Makes Candidates 'Better'

Ad Feedback

The GOP presidential hopefuls are battling each other in Wisconsin this week, hoping to snag the coveted Republican nomination in a race that appears to have no end in sight.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said the long presidential primary process will make the eventual Republican nominee stronger for the general election.

"I've had a primary of my own in the past, and as a candidate you don't care for it much, but in the end it usually makes you stronger," Walker told CBN News Sr. Political Correspondent David Brody.

"The more time, whether it's Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum, (or) anybody else, the more the candidate is actually spending, honing their message by actually talking to voters, feeling voters out and looking them in the eye, telling them what they're going to do, I think it actually makes them a better candidate," he explained.

Still, he admonished the candidates to stay focused on their message.

"As long as they stay focused, I think the only downside to an ongoing primary battle is if the national media allows the candidates to get distracted off of issues that really aren't relevant to the vast majority of voters out there," he warned.
