Gov. Scott Walker and a self-deprecating zinger



Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker needed a way to stand out among the six governors, including Texas's Rick Perry, gathered at a pre-convention party at the St. Petersburg home of health insurance executive and veteran GOP fundraiser Akshay "A.K." Desai.

So Walker, who survived a recall, told the crowd of 75 he had something over Texas.

“I’m the only governor," said Walker, "who was elected twice in the same term.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott was not among the guests.
