Wisconsin Governor Says No Interest in Trump Cabinet Job

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says he has no interest in a cabinet job with the Trump administration.

When asked about the speculation in Green Bay Tuesday, Walker said, "Tommy Thompson told me his worst day as Governor was still better than his best day in the cabinet. So I'm not going to be in the cabinet, I'm not running for the U.S. Senate. If I'm running for anything in 2018 going forward, I'll plan on running for re-election. But I'll let you know that after the budget comes out."

Wisconsin Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI) tweeted he's hearing rumors about Walker being interested in a job as United State Secretary of Labor. 

Pocan said on Twitter, “Hearing rumors in DC that Scott Walker wants Labor Secretary if Andy Puzder's nomination falls through.”

The Congressman added, “Started after Walker discussed labor issues w/ @VP Pence, Trump-style twitter war with Sen. Baldwin & speculation of bad WI budget this week”

In a phone interview with CBS 58, Pocan rumors may have been spawned by speculation, and said they're a matter of people "putting two and two together."

Walker met with President Trump, and Vice President Pence two weekends ago, and said Act 10 reforms were talked about.
