Walker dodges question of whether he needs degree

MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is dodging the question of whether he needs a college degree in order to run for president.

Walker said Wednesday that he would like to finish his course work to earn a degree through the new flexible option program at the University of Wisconsin. But Walker says he won't pursue that until it has courses that fit areas he studied, like political science.

When Walker left Marquette University in 1990 he was 34 credit hours short of completing his degree.

Much has been made about his lack of a degree as he considers a run for president in 2016.

But Walker says he didn't need a degree to be governor, adding "I don't know about any other position."
