Walker, possible 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls headed to Las Vegas for meetings

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker and a host of possible presidential hopefuls for 2016 are headed to Las Vegas for a high-profile Republican meeting at a casino owned by a billionaire who made the second-highest single campaign donation in Wisconsin history.

The Republican Jewish Coalition spring meeting begins Thursday with a golf outing and promises a "terrific weekend of poker, politics, and policy." It is hosted by Las Vegas Sands Corp. chairman and chief executive Sheldon Adelson, a board member of the RJC.

Adelson, who backed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in 2012, is reportedly using this weekend's meeting, dubbed the "Sheldon Primary," to vet possible 2016 presidential candidates.

Adelson and his wife spent more than $92 million on Republicans in the 2012 presidential cycle. Adelson wrote Walker a $250,000 check during his recall campaign that year. That is the second-highest campaign donation in state history, behind only the $500,000 that Beloit businesswoman Diane Hendricks gave Walker during the recall.

Normal campaign limits did not apply during much of the recall, which Walker won. Walker used that victory, the first win for any governor targeted for recall in U.S. history, to raise his national profile and put him on the list of 2016 presidential hopefuls.

Walker is scheduled to speak at a Saturday luncheon at the meeting being held at Adelson's Venetian resort hotel and casino. Other possible 2016 presidential hopefuls slated to be there include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, a 42-year-old Republican who represents northern Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District, is slated to be the featured speaker during a Saturday dessert reception targeting young Republican leaders.

Walker is headed to the meeting, which attracts considerable national political buzz, even as he's tried to downplay his 2016 ambitions in the midst of his re-election campaign this year against Democrat Mary Burke, a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive.

A dated article shows the dems want Walker stopped in his tracks.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Walker isn't so bad, either and if the MSM is against him, I'm for him. Scoots is much better than Jeb or Fatty as well.

Bush is toast because of his support of Common Core
Christie is toast because Hillary took him out early

Walker wins this round.

It is rumored that Hillary will chose another woman to crush the glass ceiling

My current predictions, as of now.

Walker will not allow the MSM to Alinskyize him. He will go on all the leftist, alphabet, GMA talk shows, and blow them all away with his facts.

He fought the progressives and won time after time.

And there is also this...
