Wis­con­sin’s ousted Gov. Scott Walker says he may run again

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Ousted Repub­li­can Wis­con­sin Gov. Scott Walker said Fri­day that he would be in­ter­ested in run­ning for pub­lic of­fice again, maybe even for gov­er­nor in four years.

Walker spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press from the va­cated gov­er­nor’s man­sion as he pre­pares to be re­placed Mon­day by Demo­cratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers. Walker, a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in the 2016 race, served two terms as gov­er­nor be­fore Evers nar­rowly de­feated him in Novem­ber.

Walker’s im­me­di­ate plans are to hit the speak­ing cir­cuit, ad­vo­cat­ing for con­ser­va­tive pro­pos­als and talk­ing up the con­ser­va­tive agenda he en­acted in Wis­con­sin. Walker said he also sees him­self as Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s chief ad­vo­cate in Wis­con­sin.
