Wisconsin's Walker the latest 2016 prospect with a UK hiccup

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The United Kingdom ought to be the friendliest of soil for White House hopefuls looking to pad the resume with a little foreign policy experience.

So far this campaign season, though, the trips to England have been anything but merry for several prospective GOP candidates.

The latest to emerge scathed from a trip across the Atlantic Ocean is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. He capped an appearance at the prestigious Chatham House think tank on Wednesday by avoiding a question about whether he believes in the theory of evolution.

Quipped Democratic National Committee spokesman Mo Elleithee, "Do any other GOP presidential candidates want to go to London? If so, let us know. The DNC is more than happy to pick up your travel costs."
