Gov. Walker hints at White House run in 2016


Questions about a possible White House campaign have surrounded Governor Scott Walker for months. Monday, the Governor may have hinted that he's running.

The Governor spoke to a crowd at the National Christian Media Convention in Nashville Monday.

In his speech, Walker said he hasn't made up his mind about running yet, but he did talk about his decision to run for governor and compared it to what's happening on a national scale.

"We got in the race back then cause we were worried that our sons were going to grow up in a state that wasn't as great as the one we grew up in, I gotta tell you as a parent that was unacceptable, and I'm proud to say that many years later because of our reforms our state is better," said Governor Walker, "but I worry for our sons and their generation that in America we're facing some of those same challenges."

Walker also asked the crowd to pray for him.

The Governor also shared a story about fellow Wisconsinite Representative Paul Ryan calling him for advice after Ryan was chosen at the Vice Presidential candidate in 2012.
