Scott Walker/Courtesy Scott Walker for America(Updated at 7:10 p.m.) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a former Republican presidential candidate, will headline the The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Presidential Series Breakfast in Reston this week.

Walker will speak on his proposed technology policies and discuss how he will work with the technology sector in his presidency.

NVTC and CEA said they have extended invitations to other potential Democrat and Republican presidential candidates to address the region’s technology community as part of the Presidential Series. More events will be announced as candidates and dates are confirmed.

The event is Friday, Sept. 25, 8 to 9:15 a.m. (registration and networking begin at 7 a.m.) at the Hyatt Regency Reston, 1800 Presidents Street.

To register and purchase tickets, visit the NVTC website.

Walker is currently polling at about 2 percent, according to a recent New York Times/CBS News Poll. That puts him near the bottom of the field of Republican candidates. Prior to the first Republican debate, in August, Walker had been at about 10 percent.

    A worthless politician. Did not even graduate from college and has never had a real job. Has been a politician his whole life.

    • Qwerty

      There are a lot of things to hold against him but not graduating from college is not one of them.

    • Henry Rearden

      You know who also didn’t graduate from college? Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and a lot of others. That’s not the knock on him. Lots of better ammo to use….

      • reston realist

        Yes I know about many successful people who chose not to graduate. Zuckerburg is another but those folks went onto build successful businesses and not to live at taxpayer expense like Walker

    • Heywood Jablowmee

      He should fit right in with the other worthless Reston Politicians

  • meh

    Walker is just looking for enough donations to get gas money back to Madison. I am sure Hilary will steer clear of this event, its hard to talk about tech policy when you are trying to play dumb/ignorant on her email server.

    • Mike M

      I guess you are correct. The WSJ says he is dropping out.

    Walker is a POS he is a wall plant dud with no personality at all

  • Commonsense

    News flash. He dropped out, stop sending checks!

  • Anonymous

    Walker claimed that God called him to run for the Presidency.
    I guess God was just yanking his chain after all.
    Divine inspiration only gets you so far, Scott.

  • I never thought of Walker as a real candidate for President. He was just bored up there and needed a break. But boy was he a flop in the campaign.
    Who invited him anyway?

    Still waiting for the negative comments to be deleted here. Oh wait, these are negative comments about a Republican. Never mind, carry on.
