Walker Eyes a National Role

Post-recall, the governor wants to use his “political capital,” according to Politico

“I have not made any plans for the future, and my wife would kill me if I announced anything before that,” he said.

Asked about 2016, he added: “I’m not announcing for anything.”

But the post-recall Walker, only 44, does intend to speak out more on substantive issues. He will weigh in on health-care mandates after the Supreme Court’s expected Thursday ruling, for example, and he’ll keep calling for budget and pension reforms.

“I’d like now and into the future to play a bigger role not only in Wisconsin and the Midwest, but nationally,” he said. “I’d like to have an impact.”
