MADISON, Wis. (AP) - In another sign of his likely presidential campaign, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday asked his supporters to fill out a survey seeking their opinions on a variety of national issues and foreign policy.

The email, sent by Walker’s gubernatorial campaign committee Friends of Scott Walker, had a subject line titled “I need your advice.” In addition to asking for donations, Walker included a link to a 14-question survey that sheds light on issues the Republican may focus on as a presidential candidate.

“I rely on the opinions and advice of the people of Wisconsin to guide the priorities of my administration,” Walker said in the email. “Now I’d like to know what you think about the important issues facing our great nation.”

Walker also seeks opinions about the federal government’s role enforcing immigration laws, energy policy, 2nd Amendment gun rights, imposing sanctions against Iran, repealing President Obama’s health care overhaul law and reforming the federal tax code.

He also asks whether the United States should play a major leadership role in world affairs, get involved only in matters of immediate national interest or focus on domestic issues.

“Your answers to this important survey will tell me exactly where you and every patriotic American stands on the problems facing us today,” Walker said in the email.

Walker has been busy traveling internationally and around the country, with an emphasis on early presidential voting states, as well as hiring staff for an expected presidential run. Walker has said he won’t announce his plans until after he signs the state budget, likely in late June or early July.

Walker on Tuesday also unveiled a new blog on medium.com. His first post was about his recent trip to Israel. He shared pictures of himself shaking hands with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and praying at the Wailing Wall.

Walker did not invite reporters along on the Israel trip, or make public his itinerary while there. The trip was paid for by Walker’s political nonprofit Our American Revival and the Republican Jewish Coalition.
