Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was among several Republican governors who told congressional GOP members that they should think again about trying to shut down the government as part of their push to kill Obamacare.

Mr. Walker, a likely 2016 presidential candidate, was one of a number of GOP governors this weekend to warn against the strategy in interviews with The New York Times during a summer meeting of the Republican Governor’s Association in Milwaukee.

“I have made the case that Obamacare is not good for the economy, but I have some real concerns about potentially doing something that would have a negative impact on the economy just for the short term — I think there are other ways to pursue this,” Mr. Walker told The Times.

Govs. Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota, Phil Bryant of Mississippi and Terry E. Brandstad of Iowa also warned against the idea.

But Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is also thought to be pondering a White House run, told the newspaper, “We absolutely should use whatever opportunity and tactic we can to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
