Washington (CNN) - Facing controversy back home over documents from a 2010 investigation, at the National Governors Association in Washington, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has decided the best defense is a good offense.
After initially being criticized by reporters in Wisconsin for not answering questions following Wednesday’s release of the records and e-mails, Walker has kept a high profile during the conference. He has made himself available to reporters several times, sat down with The Washington Post and taken part in a national television interview Sunday morning.
