MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It might be what presidential candidates do, but Governor Scott Walker insists that his new book is not a signal that he'll run for the White House in 2016. 

His book "Unintimidated" is being released Tuesday. 

Much of it deals with how Walker and other Republicans handled the massive protests and Democratic opposition to the 2011 law to virtually end collective bargaining for most public employee unions. 

The governor has been conducting national interviews about the book. In an interview with the Wisconsin State Journal, Walker focused more about his goals for a second term. 

He calls it a "big, bold" agenda that will include an overhauling of entitlement programs like BadgerCare and tax reforms. Walker did not give details of that. 

He did promise action, saying, "We don't want to sit here and have done all this ... have gone through all this ... and not have it continue to build momentum in the state." 

As in previous interviews, Walker would not guarantee that he'd serve a full second term if re-elected.
