Scott Walker on joining Mitt Romney on the GOP Ticket: "After a year and a half worth of all this, I want to help Wisconsin move forward"

Coming up this evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker for his first CNN interview since his state's recall vote.

Joining Piers Morgan from Milwaukee, the 44-year-old Republican responds to the host's suggestion that this week's events have put him in the running for a spot on Mitt Romney's GOP ticket for the Fall:

"If he were to ask me about what to do with Wisconsin I'd say one of the most-powerful reformers in the country grew up just down the way from me: Paul Ryan. I'd probably suggest he put him on the ticket."

Despite capturing the attention of the nation during his Badger State battle with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Walker insists his time is better spent on the local level:

"After a year and a half worth of all this, I want to help Wisconsin move forward."

Tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as Walker further expands upon his experience in the recall vote, and reveals the person most-likely to object to his potential vice presidential candidacy.

    I wish you'd interview Tom Barrett, to find out more truth about the election in Wisconsin. There are so many statements that Walker makes that are false or only half true. Like he brags about "balancing the budget", but pushes $500 million in dept on to our children and grandchildren. JUST ONE POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It would be much more balanced if you heard from both sides.

    Walker can blow smoke up the skirts of the people of Wisconsin all day long but the bottom line is the Republicans don't give a rats pa tu ti about the middle class Republican OR Democrat....... it's all about busting unions or anyone else that supports Democrats. They have one goal in mind and that is to eliminate democracy in this country period!

    Walker is promoting slave labor the same as Reagan did with the Air Traffic Controller and as the result, they are falling asleep at their job, which could endanger the lives of people. Again, lack of respect for humanity.

    This guy retained his seat because of the BIG $$$$$ He received from republicans billionaires who currently control America. Tell a lie many times and becomes a true. With money you can do that. The republicans in the Supreme Court killed democracy in America. They should be tried for TREASON, at the very least.

    Who cares about Scott Walker being VP. How about the John Doe investigation? How about voter fraud in this election? Piers wake up and smell the garbage around you.

    I don't like this man at all. With that said, he does need to stay in WI after just winning the recall. If this nation was to elect a ticket with him on it after he abandoned his post he just reclaimed. We would all be in massive trouble.

    Great, just what we need, more from this lying divide and conquer putz who didn't have enough ethics to reject out of state campaign funds. When is someone going to really confront him on national TV?

      What an idiot…spouting the same old tired rhetoric. I detested Bush II, but I never disrespected the office of President. Sad that people with double digit IQs need to descend to moronic name-calling….

    Walker is the darling of the right wing Republicans at the moment. If offered, he would run for VP in a Milwaukee minute.

    Unfortunately, (probably correctly) quite a number of people voted for him because they do not like recalls. Also, $31 million raised from out of Wisconsin billionaires + 23 million spent by right wing SuperPacs had something to do with him winning.
