MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker is once again refusing to commit to serving a full four-year term if he is re-elected this fall.

Walker on Wednesday was asked if he would commit to serving the full term and he said, “I’m committed to running for governor.”

Walker is considering running for president in 2016, a race that would come midway through a second term should he win in November. Democrat Mary Burke is challenging Walker.

Walker says he intends to focus his campaign on what he plans on doing in his next term.

When asked again if he plans to serve out a second term, Walker said, “I want to be governor and that’s the only thing I’ve been focused on.”
