Scott Walker predicts open GOP convention would nominate someone not currently running

If the Republican Party finds itself with an open convention in July, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes the nominee may not be Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or John Kasich.

“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. “I mean, who knows. The one thing I qualify — it’s like the qualifications you see on those ads you see for car dealerships. 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.”

The governor, who ended his own presidential campaign in September, has yet to endorse a candidate. He plans to decide whether to endorse within the next few days, he said.

Walker spoke to a few reporters in Madison after signing into law a bipartisan bill creating a dietetic internship program in the state’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program.

“I think it might be one of the days where the weather trumps Trump,” he joked, adding that that was probably “wishful thinking.”


    I know there will be REBELLION because I will be one of the people that starts it. I don’t care which candidate wins the most delegates if it be Trump or Cruz but that candidate should win the nomination weather he wins by one vote or a thousand. They will kill the Republican Party and hand the White House over to hilLIARy for the next eight years and to the demoCRAP party for the next two hundred years. Do these idiots that lead the Republican Party realize that that will be the result, I dare them to take away the voice of the majority of the people because they are sore losers and pitiful politicians, you won’t be able to count the number of people that will leave the Grand Old Party if that happens. You might just as well hide in a cave for the next hundred years, I will take an extended stay in Costa Rico or some place on an island a away from politics for years to come.

    I liked Walker – too bad he got out so fast. But he was not good at the debates. It will be interesting to see who he supports..

    Scott – stay home and save your money – they won’t nominate you for anything – they might be Establishment but they aren’t dumb.
