Gov. Scott Walker has not picked a favorite from the crowded Republican presidential field for 2012.
But he said in a Tuesday interview that he was backing U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan for president had he gotten into the race. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, said this week that he has ruled out a run.
"Obviously, Paul Ryan - if he had gotten in - would have been my favorite, being from Wisconsin," Walker told conservative commentator Bill Kelly.

The Senate Democrats’ budget proposes to make the following changes:
Increase government spending by $265 billion
Increase taxes by at least $923 billion, on top of recent revenue increases
Cut defense by $240 billion, on top of recent cuts to national security
Cut health-care pr
