Walker Keeping Options Open While Backing Cruz

Fox News' "Fox and Friends"

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker admitted Tuesday that dropping out of the presidential race "was a tough thing," but as for now, he's keeping his options open about what his future will hold.

"At the time I asked for others to follow suit," Walker, who now strongly supports Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination, told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" show. "[I wanted] to coalesce and allow the majority of us in the Republican Party who believe in strong, conservative principles to have a clear choice to the front-runner. That hasn't happened until now."

But as for Walker himself, he's waiting to see what his future will hold, despite talk that he could mount another presidential bid on 2020 or even speculation that he could be one of the names brought up as a potential nominee in the Republican National Convention this summer.

"I can run for re-election in 2018," Walker told the program. "I would love to join a Republican president, and there's no end to the good we can do. We have a president who understands that power flows via the constitution and into the state," he said, bringing the conversation back around to Cruz and pointing out why he supports the Texas Republican.

Further, he predicted a win for Cruz in his state's open race, where Democrats and Republicans are able to vote on either ballot.

"You'll have nearly record turnouts some of the biggest since 1980," said Walker. "I believe Ted Cruz is going to win today. That's going to be the turning point in this election."

But he does understand a recent poll that says people are picking Donald Trump because they want a candidate who breaks the rules.

"We took on the big government special interests here and won in Wisconsin," Walker said. "That's why we won three times in a blue state that hadn't gone Republican since 1984."
