Former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will join the national conservative youth organization the Young America’s Foundation as president, and therefore won’t be running for political office for at least a few years.

“This would preclude me from running for governor in this next cycle or running for the U.S. Senate if Ron Johnson’s seat is open,” Walker told the Journal Sentinel on Monday, adding that he is “absolutely thrilled” to join the organization, though he won’t serve in the position full-time until the current president steps down in 2021.


“Starting January 2021, this will be full-time,” Walker said, adding that he’s announcing the move early to alert potential candidates that he won’t be running for office in Wisconsin any time soon. “I won’t be engaged in anything else. This will be my sole occupation.”

He added that he hopes to bring the Young America’s Foundation “to the next tier,” of outreach.

“I look at it and say we’ve got to not just up the number of chapters … have a presence on every campus, public and private, not just four-year but even two-year, but we’ve got to find new ways to communicate to folks …. new ways to get the message out,” Walker said.

The former governor lost his bid for re-election in 2018, and has worked in various roles raising money and advocating for Republican causes and helping President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign in Wisconsin.
