It’s hard to see a new two minute clip released by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s tax-exempt 527 committee, Our American Revival, as anything but an early presidential campaign video.

The two minute clip posted on Our American Revival’s website features a narrator describing how “America stands on the brink. At a time and a place where failed leaders preside over a nation adrift.”

The video then pivots to clips of Walker and the music gets upbeat.

“To reclaim our destiny, we must turn to bold, fresh, and new ideas from those incubators of reform, the states,” the narrator says before a clip of Walker giving a speech talking about the economy says. “And that’s exactly what states like Wisconsin are doing, leading America’s revival with bold conservative reform and new ideas.”

After a few more vague sentences about cutting taxes and job creation, the video closes out with an image of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the likely frontrunner in a 2016 presidential primary.
