Walker dodges question on evolution in London

MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) -- Likely 2016 presidential candidate Scott Walker is refusing to say whether he believes in the theory of evolution, dodging a question posed after a speech in London.

Wisconsin's Republican governor said Wednesday he was going to "punt" on the question. He says he doesn't believe politicians should be involved in that issue "one way or the other."

Walker was asked about evolution following his speech at the London think tank Chatham House. He is on a four-day trade mission to the United Kingdom.

Walker says he is there to talk about trade and "not pontificate on other issues." He joked about loving the evolution of trade in Wisconsin.

He also refused to answer other questions about foreign policy, saying that wouldn't be polite to do so.
