Scott Walker says he would consider run for president

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said Saturday that he might consider a presidential run in years to come but that his list of priorities is very much focused on his goals for his day job.

"Someday, maybe once we get past all this, we'll take a look at it," Walker said in an interview with Post Politics at the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington.

Walker noted that he has set goals for lowering the state's unemployment rate and that he's still got a reelection campaign in 2014. He said both of those will come before any conversations about running for president.

"That's not anything I've really spent a whole lot of time thinking about," he said.
