Walker Floats Rubio as Running Mate — ‘Arm Wrestle over Who Would Be Top of the Ticket’

Thursday on Bloomberg’s, “With All Due Respect,” potential Republican presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) said both he and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) talk and joke about the idea of running together as a ticket, they just can’t decided who would be at the top.

When asked by co-host Mark Halperin if he would be open to being on a presidential ticket with Rubio, Walker said, “I do like Marco Rubio, I think he and I have similar thoughts on national defense and foreign policy.”

Walker said, “I’ve actually had quite a few people, grassroots supporters, donors, and others, who have made that suggestion. I think for now, you know, Marco is a quality candidate. He’s going to be formidable in this race as things progress. And if we were to get in, we’d be as well, and we’ll see where things take us.”

He added, “Marco and I joke about it that people mention it. It’s just we would have to arm wrestle over who would be top of the ticket.”
