UNDATED, WI (WTAQ) - One political observer puts Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at the top of the list of potential Republican candidates for president.
University of Virginia political scientist Larry J. Sabato puts out “Sabato’s Crystal Ball” for political junkies.
He has Walker leading the first tier of GOP candidates, which includes New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.
The website indicates Walker could appeal to both defense hawks and fiscal conservatives, giving himself the chance to present himself as a consensus choice if there is a big fight among several for the nomination.
Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan was relegated to a third tier of possible candidates, behind Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.
