Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker suggested that he might skip the March 15 Florida primary.

“If we chose to get in, I don't think there's a state out there we wouldn't play in -- other than maybe Florida, where Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio [are tied]," he said Tuesday during an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham,

Walker went on in the interview to describe how expensive a state Florida is, saying that it could eat into Jeb Bush’s expected financial advantage. (Discussion takes place between 4:00 and 6:00 here)

AshLee Strong, a spokesman at Walker’s Our American Revival, pushed back against the speculation that Walker might skip Florida’s primary – and would concentrate on other contests that might take place on the same day (such as Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, and Wisconsin).

“Gov. Walker is not a candidate. Should he decide to move forward, that decision will be made at the appropriate time,” Strong emailed NBC News.
