The former House Speaker and presidential candidate tells conservatives he has his sights set on winning the California primary.


The former House Speaker and presidential candidate sat down with Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution and Ricochet. Among the noteworthy answers Robinson's tough questions elicit:

- "I want to attach a training component to unemployment compensation so no one ever again gets money for doing nothing." (11:06)

- "We've only picked 10 percent of the delegates. We have a real opportunity both on Super Tuesday and again in Texas to open up. We're out here in California, the largest delegation, in hopes that we can win the primary out here... It wouldn't be a shock to see California actually matter this year." (30:58)
