Walker says he won’t run for president again as governor

Gov. Scott Walker says he won’t run again for president as a sitting governor.

Walker said on WTMJ radio in an interview Wednesday he would rule out running for president as a sitting governor “and stay committed to the end of that.”

Walker made moves to run for president shortly after being re-elected to a second term in November and dropped out last month. His current term runs through 2018, which will be midterm for the next president.

Walker said, “It is difficult to run your state and to run for president at the same time.”

Walker didn’t rule out another presidential run, saying he hopes there is a Republican in the White House for the next eight years and “after that we’ll have to see what the future holds.”
