Scott Walker Is Moving To Milwaukee, Doesn't Rule Out Running For Governor Again

Gov. Scott Walker isn't ruling out running for office again.

Gov. Scott Walker told the Associated Press he would be interested in running for office again, possibly even governor of Wisconsin in four years. He also said he’s moving from the governor’s mansion in Madison to downtown Milwaukee.

Walker is going to be replaced by Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers on Monday, Jan. 7. Walker plans to hit the speaking circuit and be President Donald Trump’s chief advocate in Wisconsin.

Walker says he’s not ruling anything out for the 2022 race, including a run for U.S. Senate. Republican Sen. Ron Johnson currently holds that seat and has said he won’t run for a third term.

The change in leadership also means Walker must find a new home. He told the AP that he and his wife, Tonette, will move into a downtown Milwaukee condo after leaving the governor’s mansion.

When first elected in 2010, Walker stayed in his Wauwatosa home so his sons could finish school. He moved to the governor’s mansion in 2016.
