Walker discussed the "Project Search" program, which is aimed at helping people with disabilities to enter the workforce.

During the visit, he took questions on a range of other topics, including the ongoing manhunt for Joseph Jakubowski – the Wisconsin man suspected of stealing a large number of firearms and threatening an attack.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Milwaukee said it's offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Jakubowski's arrest.

Walker also discussed the swearing-in of Neil Gorsuch as the newest justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. Gorsuch filled the void left by Antonin Scalia, who died early last year.

"I think he's one of the most qualified justices we've had in the Supreme Court in history,” Walker said. “I think he's going to be an excellent addition, and I'm excited about that."
