In an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), who hasn't formally announced a bid for the Republican presidential nomination, hinted that he might not campaign in the Florida primary.

"The neat thing about being around the country is that if we choose to get in, I don't think there's a state out there we wouldn't play in, other than maybe Florida, where Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are, at least in some of the polls, essentially tied," Walker said. The governor added that the money his campaign would save by not campaigning in Florida could even the playing field between him and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.
