MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is sticking by his timeline for announcing whether he will be running for president.

While Walker is widely assumed to be a candidate, he has yet to officially announce his campaign. Walker said Thursday that he will make no announcement “of any kind” until after the state budget is signed.

The Republican-controlled Legislature hopes to pass the budget in late June, but it may get pushed into July.

Walker also commented on the growing field of announced Republican presidential candidates, calling it a “blessing” for GOP voters to have so many choices.

Walker was in Iowa two weeks ago and heads to early primary state of South Carolina this weekend, before going to Israel with political advisers and foreign policy experts for a series of meetings.
