Gov. Scott Walker eying presidential run

  • 0

Gov. Scott Walker is considering a 2016 presidential run, according to the Associated Press.

"My personal process is I have to feel like it's a calling,” Walker said in an interview with AP. “It's not something you should yearn for.”

Walker was recently re-elected to a second term as governor, but he said it was “pretty obvious” he should contemplate running for president if “the state's performing at the best possible level.”

“I spend a lot of time not just talking with people but praying about, thinking about with my family as well whether or not eventually that might be a call to run for the presidency,” Walker said.

Right now, Walker said he is focused on implementing his second-term agenda and passing a new two-year state budget.

Walker said the time needed to pass the budget will affect when he makes his decision.
