Remember the CPAC 2013 straw poll results?
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul eked out a narrow victory in the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll Saturday, with 25 percent of votes to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s 23 percent.
The runners-up were as follows: former Sen. Rick Santorum, 8 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, 7 percent; Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, 6 percent; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, 5 percent; Ben Carson, 4 percent; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, 4 percent; Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, 3 percent; former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, 3 percent.
Scotty Walker didn’t fare too well.
“I guess the only thing I’d say is I’m not ruling it [a run for president] out.”
Here’s what he’s saying now, via WisPolitics:
Gov. Scott Walker said Monday he’ll continue to be governor “as long as the people of Wisconsin want me to be governor.”
“I love being governor. I’m not looking for any other job.”
Of course, he blamed the press, saying, “Copy editors created headlines creating different things than what I said.” So “I’m not ruling it out” was a media creation?
Of course it couldn’t have been the straw poll. Or the fact that he’s got a few more legal issues to contend with.
