He’s right, they beat a community organizer. With a thinly veiled hint that he may consider a run for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election, Scott Walker declared that governors “make much better presidents” during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning.
“I’ve got a plan to keep going for the next four years,” the Wisconsin governor told host Chuck Todd. “But, you know, certainly I care deeply about not only my state but my country. We’ll see what the future holds.”
If Walker decides to run for his party’s presidential nomination, he would likely have to go up against political ally and fellow Wisconsin politician, Congressman Paul Ryan, who has been penciled in as a likely Republican contender in the battle for the White House.
“I love Paul Ryan,” Walker said. “I’ve said many times before I’ll be the president of the Paul Ryan fan club, but I do think if we’re going to beat Hillary Clinton in this next election, we’re going to have a message that says Hillary Clinton is all about Washington.”
Hillary remains a strong favorite to earn the Democratic nomination. Though several fringe candidates have registered with the Federal Election Commission, so far, no politician with a viable shot at the White House has formally declared themselves a candidate.
