Walker slips when referring to federal politics

Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker quickly caught himself with a laugh when telling reporters he was not “yet” involved with politics at the federal level.

Walker made the slip when answering questions from reporters Friday following a news conference at the National Governors Association meeting.

Walker says, “Right now I’ve got my hands full being governor. I’m not real involved yet at the — strike that last word — at the federal level.”

Walker is frequently mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2016. Other potential candidates, including Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Democratic Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, are also at the three-day meeting.

Walker’s slip came in reaction to a question about the federal health care overhaul law, which Walker opposes.
