Walker (audio): What makes America great, what makes us exceptional, there have been men and women of courage who have been willing to stand up and think more about the future of their children and their grandchildren than they thought about their own political futures.  This is one of those moments in American history.  This is the time.  [applause]

You see it in the faces and hear it in the voices, you feel it in the handshakes and the hugs.  People are worried.  Will we pass on a country to our kids as great as the one we inherited?

(to camera)  I'm Scott Walker.  I'm a husband and a father.  I'm the son of a preacher, and my mom was a part-time secretary.  My first job was working at the Countryside Restaurant.

(clip from speech)  I didn't inherit wealth or fame or fortune from my family.  What I got was something better.  I got the belief that if you work hard and you play by the rules in America you should be able to do anything you want.  That's the American Dream, and we need to stand up for that going forward.

(to camera)  That's why I've always tried to go big and go bold.  We reformed a scandal-ridden county government.  As governor we took the power away from the big-government special interests.  We solved a $3.6 billion deficit that balanced the budget.  We even reduced the tax burden by $2 billion.  And that was just the start.  We enacted conceal carry, passed Castle Doctrine, de-funded Planned Parenthood, expanded school choice and passed voter ID.  We didn't just talk about these conservative reforms, we did them.

(clip from speech)  For my sons and for all the other sons and daughters like them, they're living in a state that's better than the one I grew up in.

(to camera)  And what did we learn?  If you get the job done, people will stand up with you.  That's a lesson they need in Washington.  Will you join me in the fight?  Sign up.  Contribute.  Share your story with us, so we can change the direction of this country before it's too late.

We've shown by enacting comprehensive, commonsense. conservative reforms, Republicans can win.

(clip from speech)  I have no doubt we can make America great again.  God bless you. [applause]

Notes:  Walker introduces himself, talks about some of his accomplishments, and makes a pitch for people to join him.  Opens on the American flag.
