Scott Walker: Contested convention would lead to nominee who’s not currently in race
A contested Republican National Convention in July could lead to a GOP nominee who’s not currently running for president, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker predicted Thursday.“I think if it’s an open convention, it’s very likely it would be someone who’s not currently running,” Walker told reporters Thursday, according to The Capital Times newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.
“I mean, who knows,” he added. “I think any of us who comment on this election have to qualify that almost every prediction’s been off, so it’s hard to predict anything.”
Walker, who dropped out of the presidential race last September, has not yet endorsed a Republican candidate but told reporters he intends to soon. The governor hinted at backing Ted Cruz for president in a interview with Sykes broadcast on Wednesday.
Not a good idea.
