MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he didn’t ask billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson for his support as the Republican mulls a potential 2016 presidential run.

Walker said Wednesday that he thanked Adelson for his support when the two met on Tuesday in Las Vegas. Walker says he was in Vegas to meet with friends and decided to stop by and thank Adelson after he gave Walker $250,000 in the 2012 recall and gave the Wisconsin Republican Party $650,000 in October.

Walker says Adelson gave “no committals or anything like that” and that Walker did not specifically ask for his support. He says Adelson has not encouraged him to run for president.

Walker says he spoke with Adelson about what he’s doing in Wisconsin and Adelson talked “a fair amount about Israel.”
