Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) all but declared he would seek a third term on Thursday.
Walker: “Right now, what I’m focused in on is finishing off the last little bit of my presidential campaign (debt) … which will be done by the end of the year, and then next year getting ready to raise funds for Friends of Scott Walker in preparation for a reelection campaign in 2018.”
Walker also defended his fundraising practices in 2012 following the leak of evidence from the John Doe investigation into his and the Wisconsin Club for Growth’s fundraising. “But even as Walker said the law was on his side in this case, he would not answer directly when asked at the morning press event whether he was still raising money for third-party groups.” (WPR)
He later said “I don’t right now” solicit funds for the Wisconsin Club. (Appleton Post-Crescent)
