Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) on Sunday voiced support for the budget agreement negotiated by his fellow Wisconsin Republican, Rep. Paul Ryan, but he said the GOP would have to win more elections to enact more significant spending reforms.
Walker, a potential Republican president hopeful in 2016, praised Ryan for his leadership during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He initially declined to weigh in specifically on the two-year budget deal, but pressed on whether it was a good idea, he replied, “I do.”
The agreement, which restores some sequestration spending cuts in exchange for modest long-term budget savings, has come under criticism from some conservatives, including other possible 2016 contenders like Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas.).
