Scott Walker says ‘No’ to Trump VP rumors, will seek reelection, talks Convention, Cruz nomination

Guy Benson, political editor at Townhall, and Mary Katharine Ham, contributor to CNN and The Federalist, filled in for Hugh Hewitt on Hewitt’s radio show this morning and Benson played an interview with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, discussing many contentious political topics, including Donald Trump name dropping him for possible VP, how Ted Cruz can win at the Republican National Convention and whether he’ll be seeking a third team as governor of Wisconsin. Listen to the full clip below.

Walker begins with a laugh when the Trump VP begins, “Literally, I laughed. It was not just a ‘LOL’ moment on my phone. I literally laughed out loud. It was breathtaking.”

“I have absolutely zero interest in that. The reason I laughed is I thought it was amusing after getting attacked over and over again, incorrectly as you duly noted, the idea of, one, him mentioning me along with Rubio and Kasich really was breathtaking. And secondly, I want to support somebody who admires the work that we’ve done in this state because it’s worked. It’s worked not just because it’s Wisconsin. It’s worked not just because it’s me. It’s worked because principled conservative leadership, even in a blue state like Wisconsin, can win.”

Walker and Benson discuss the RNC, delegate counts and Walker deepened his support of Cruz, who he has officially endorsed, predicting that “I believe that no one will have enough delegates on the first ballot, and I believe that either on the second or the third at the latest, I believe that Ted Cruz will win….”

Benson pressed on a reelection bid for Walker, who spoke openly and positively about the move.

“Yeah. I am, without a doubt. I love what I do. We get good things done. It’s a benefit to the people of Wisconsin, but I think it also has a positive impact on people across the country if we can show other Republican governors and Republican lawmakers that even in a blue state like Wisconsin, we can get positive reforms done. And in turn, not only get elected, but see those reforms work for our people. I think that’s a good thing.”
