MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Plenty of Republicans are talking about a possible presidential run by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, but Walker insists he's not one of them.

Walker told The Associated Press on Monday that he's focused on putting together the next state budget and his job as governor, not a presidential run in 2016.

Walker was elected in 2010 and shot to stardom in the GOP with his fight to eliminate most public workers' union rights. His proposal sparked massive protests at the state Capitol, as well as a June recall election that Walker won handily.

He says after two elections in two years, he's just happy to be working as governor.

Walker also says he hasn't talked to former Republican vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, a close friend, about whether he'll run.
