Gov. Walker says he's not thinking about a presidential run


MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Walker is speaking out about a possible run for president in 2015. Gov. Walker insists he is not thinking about running for the position.  

Walker spoke to The Associated Press on Monday. He says, he remains focused on putting together the next state budget and working as governor. Walker was elected governor in 2010, and was then reelected in the June recall election. 

Walker is close political and personal friends with Paul Ryan, the GOP congressman from Janesville who was Mitt Romney's running mate this year. Walker says he has talked with Ryan about pheasant hunting and going to Mas. However, he has not talked with him about anything presidential.

Walker says, "I've worked far too hard to become the governor and governor again to worry about anything else after that."
