In a new memoir out Tuesday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker recounts how he secretly crafted a plan "that gets rid of the unions and eliminates collective bargaining." He dwells on state finances prior to his election and argues for how much better they are now. And he takes a few pokes at President Barack Obama’s Washington.

Walker may not grab as much attention as some Republicans, but he's widely considered a possible contender for his party's presidential nomination in 2016.

PolitiFact Wisconsin turned the Truth-O-Meter on for a special report evaluating the claims in Walker'snew memoir, Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge. Read their full report here, which draws on an archive of more than 80 fact-checks of Walker we've published since 2010.
