GOP governors call for special prosecutor in IRS case

(CNN) - The two leaders of the Republican Governors Association called for the appointment of a special prosecutor Tuesday to investigate any legal wrongdoing within the Internal Revenue Service.

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin - who both are considered potential candidates for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination - wrote in a letter to President Barack Obama the recent revelation the IRS was applying extra scrutiny to conservative groups applying for tax exempt status amounted to a "witch hunt to prevent Americans from exercising their First Amendment rights."

Wisconsin's Gov. Walker argues for 'relevant' conservative message

Oxon Hill, Maryland (CNN) - Republicans hoping to win a national election need to adopt an "optimistic" and "relevant" message, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told an enthusiastic crowd of conservative activists Saturday.

The tea party favorite, who survived a recall election in 2012 after curbing collective bargaining rights for public employees, said the GOP's focus on fiscal issues like the federal debt and spending cuts ignore policies that have a real effect on Americans' lives. Instead, he argued Republicans should look beyond Washington to find a new direction for the party.

Walker says Sikhs showed love in response to hate

OAK CREEK, Wisconsin (CNN) - The Sikh community lived the words of slain civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. this week by responding with love to an attack that killed six Sikhs, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a memorial service Friday.

Wearing an orange head covering in keeping with Sikh tradition, Walker quoted King's assertion that only love can overcome hate, and said he witnessed that truth in the aftermath of Sunday's attack at a Sikh temple in a Milwaukee suburb.
