Governor Scott Walker isn’t saying specifically whether he’ll run for U.S. president in two years, but says if he’s re-elected to the governorship and can’t finish his term, Wisconsin will be in good hands.
Walker says Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch would do a fine job in the state’s top office. “We’ve got a great lieutenant governor, Rebecca Kleefisch. She’s been a key part of our team.”
The governor says Kleefisch would likely continue the work he’s done during his first term if he doesn’t — or can’t — finish a second term. “Unlike the pattern we’ve seen here in the state in the past several terms … we’re very much on the same page.

Walker says he’s worked closely with Kleefisch during his first term, and he’s confident that she would continue the work he started — that is, of course, if he’s re-elected and doesn’t finish the full term.
