Scott Walker acknowledged in an interview Friday that he’s open to a presidential bid. Walker insisted he was visiting Iowa in May only because he was invited by Gov. Terry Branstad. But when pressed about his White House ambitions, the Wisconsin Republican said: “Would I ever be [interested]? Possibly. I guess the only thing I’d say is I’m not ruling it out.” Perhaps even more notably, Walker wouldn’t commit to serving throughout a second four-year term. He said his focus is on substance, not longevity.
“For me, it’s really a measure of what I’ve accomplished and what more I could accomplish if I was in a different position,” Walker told POLITICO at CPAC, where he’ll speak Saturday. The governor noted that he ran for Milwaukee County executive during his state legislative term and then sought the governorship in the midst of his tenure as county executive. But Walker, 45, used the question about diversity to note that the Republican challenge isn’t merely that it’s a party dominated by white males. “It goes to old white guys” he said, adding: “I’m not an old white guy.”
