Scott Walker highlights executive experience to GOP donors

Updated 4:36 p.m. ET, 3/29/2014

(CNN) – Touting his executive experience and Wisconsin's success, it certainly sounded like he was running for national office. But Scott Walker wanted to make one thing clear Saturday: Anyone focused on 2016 has the wrong idea.

"Any Republican who's talking about anything other than 2014 is doing a disservice both to the party and to the country," he said.
