Gov. Scott Walker likes current job, denies running for President

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker repeated Monday that he loves being Wisconsin’s governor – and he’s not running for any other job.

Walker finished 6th among almost two dozen Republican White House possibilities in a weekend straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference near Washington.

While he was there, the Politico news Web site said Walker would not commit to serving a second full term as governor if Wisconsin voters re-elected him in 19-and-a-half months.

He did not address that remark when quizzed by Wisconsin reporters Monday at the Governor’s tourism conference in Madison.

For now, at least, Walker said he’s not running for any other job. He recently told AP news executives he loved the speculation of being a White House hopeful – but for now, it’s nothing more than that.

Walker got 5 percent of the conservative vote in the straw poll. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won it with a quarter-of-the-vote.
