Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, whose presidential campaign suddenly imploded last month, says launching a White House bid while running the Badger State was just too difficult.

And if Walker ever seeks the republican presidential nomination again, it won't be while he's in office.

"One thing I've learned from this go-round is if I were to run for re-election, I would clearly in my own mind, not just publicly, have to make a decision," Walker told talk show host Charlie Sykes on WTMJ radio.

"I think I would rule out running for president at least in that term and stay committed to the end of that. I think it is difficult to run your state and run for president at the same time."

But Walker has no regrets.

"Instead of doing what a lot of candidates do and whining about this, that or whatever, to me, I accept it for what it is," he said of his failed bid to be the nation's commander in chief.

"I have a pretty good day job. I love being the governor of Wisconsin. For me, the best thing I can do is spend the next three years, not just for Wisconsin, but for the country too, being the best possible governor I can."

Walker also told Sykes he believes Donald Trump could clench the 2016 GOP nomination.

"It's possible. Right now he's ahead because he has a plurality ... not a majority," he said.
"I think the biggest thing is that there is such a big field. If there is a strong group of Republicans still in next to the end and that number's too big, then again, a plurality still leads the way in those early primary caucus states."

He said there are "still a good number of Americans who are still searching" for the right candidate.

"I still think in the end the majority of voters want someone with a conservative message for sure, but a positive message like President Reagan had," Walker said.

Walker also encouraged Rep. Paul Ryan to consider taking the job of Republican House speaker soon to be vacated by John Boehner — even though Ryan has repeatedly said he's not interested.

"Sometimes, you know, great leaders are called to do things. The Bible is full of stories like that of people who didn't want to do what they were asked to do, but accepted that calling," he said.
