This photo taken Jan. 23, 2014 shows Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, right, addressing legislators during the Governor's State of the State speech in the Assembly chambers at the state Capitol in Madison, Wis. Walker introduced new members of his state's workforce and said the proceeds from a projected budget surplus belong to the taxpayers. All governors look forward to an annual address before state lawmakers and the public, a mini-bully pulpit that offers a televised platform to publicize their accomplishments and rally support for their agenda. For a group of governors with White House aspirations, the speeches offer a framework for how they might appeal to early voting states like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and how they might one day govern.
