MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he’s praying over whether to run for president in 2016 as he hires a senior adviser, plans a trip to Iowa in a couple weeks and expects to form an organization to raise and spend money on the exploratory effort.

Walker said Thursday that his hiring of experienced presidential adviser Rick Wiley doesn’t mean he’s decided to enter the race. But he says Wiley will help him to seriously study whether to run.

Walker also says in coming weeks he will form a political action committee or something similar to raise and spend money on a potential presidential run.

Walker later this month also plans to attend a conservative political event in Iowa that’s also attracting a host of other potential candidates.
