MADISON, Wis (WRN)  Governor Scott Walker doesn’t appear to be committing to serve his full term if reelected. In Madison on Wednesday, the Republican governor was asked whether he’ll commit to serving his full four-year term if he’s reelected this November.

“I’m committed to run for governor again. I ran four years ago because ultimately I saw that this state wasn’t headed in the right direction,” Walker said following remarks to the Wisconsin Hospital Association.

Walker is mentioned as potential candidate for president in 2016. “Between now and November 4th I’m going to talk about what I plan on doing in the next term, and stay focused on that” said Walker, who formally launched his campaign for reelection this week. “I love being governor, and I’m committed to being a good governor going forward.”

Walker faces Democrat Mary Burke, a former Trek Bicycle executive and state commerce secretary, in November.
