Who is David M. Walker?

David M. Walker served as United States Comptroller General from 1998 to 2008, and is Founder and CEO of the Comeback America Initiative. He was considered a potential contender for the Connecticut U.S. Senate seat that Joe Lieberman left in 2012, but chose not to run, and said he would maintain his status as an independent. Similarly, he had been promoted as a potential candidate for President, through Americans Elect, before that organization's decision to not field a candidate in the 2012 election. Walker endorsed Mitt Romney for President on October 29, 2012, in an op-ed in the Washington Times. In 2013, Rep. Walter B. Jones voted for Walker for Speaker of the House.
