“He’s had a number of people reach out to him,” the former governor said.  “I think in particular what intriguers him is he feels frustrated that AOC [Alexandria Ocasio-CortezAlexandria Ocasio-CortezAttorney says 75-year-old man shoved by Buffalo police suffered brain injury How language is bringing down Donald Trump Highest-circulation Kentucky newspaper endorses Charles Booker in Senate race MORE] somehow nationally is reflective of his generation.

Walker also told the TV station that his son asked for his opinion about his possible candidacy in recent days. 

“Well, personally, when he asked me about it the other day I gave him the advice you might not think of necessarily politically,” Scott Walker said. “I said one you need to pray about it. If it’s God’s will to get in or not get in you’ll figure that out first and foremost.”
