Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker still has not said no to a possible presidential run as vice president with candidate Ted Cruz should he win the nomination. 

Given the chance to do so in La Crosse on Friday, Walker simply said it wasn’t on his mind.

Walker was at the Mathy Center on the Viterbo University campus to sign a bill that will put less stringent regulations on nonprofits that try to sell items without being subject to a sales tax.

A few weeks ago, Walker was signing bills at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
