MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he wouldn’t have run for a third term if Democrat Hillary Clinton had been elected president.

Walker made his comment in an interview Friday on MSNBC. Walker has not said whether he will run for a third term in 2018, but he’s raising money and taking steps as if he is going to do it.

Walker says in the interview “If Hillary Clinton was president of the United States right now, I would not have run for re-election” in Wisconsin. Walker says he looks forward to working with Republican President Donald Trump on a series of reforms, including welfare programs and how federal aid is sent to the states.

Walker also calls Trump’s Cabinet picks a “top-notch group.”
