Wis. governor to court Iowans, stoke 2016 talk

Source: AP

BY SCOTT BAUER AND KEN THOMAS

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — -snip-

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is gearing up for re-election next year, his third race in four years. But the Republican’s courting of out-of-state donors and conservatives, his plans to visit Iowa this week and his refusal to say whether he would serve out another full term if elected suggest he might be seeking a much bigger prize — the presidency.

Not that he will openly acknowledge as much.

“I love being governor,” Walker said recently, just two years after bursting onto the national political scene when he challenged public unions and a year after surviving a recall election. “I’ve had to work hard for it. I’m focused on being governor, and I’m going to continue to be governor as long as the people of the state want me to be governor.”

Such remarks are common these days as the 45-year-old seeks to simmer down the buzz about his political future even as his travel schedule suggests he has clear national aspirations, perhaps as early as 2016.

4. Let's see now

Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Rick Santorum, and who knows how many other "clowns" will jump in. The way this is shaping up it could be a worse bunch of morons than ran for the republican nomination in 2012. Now if only some of the same clowns from 2012 jump on the wagon 2016 could be a real hoot!

This idiot has ruined WI. Anyone who votes for him should think again - he is so repulsive. Glad I left the state when I did.
