MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says the 2016 Republican presidential ticket should have no ties to Washington. 

National reporters have been interviewing the GOP governor in advance of Tuesday's release of Walker's book "Unintimidated." 

Walker told ABC News that the next GOP nominees for both president and vice president should be present or former state governors. He calls them "people who've done successful things in their states, who've taken on big reforms." 

Walker also said most Americans have, "had it with almost everybody in Washington in either party." He says voters want outsiders to come in and, "shake things up." 

ABC's Jonathan Karl asked Walker if he'd leave Janesville House Republican Paul Ryan out of the mix. The governor answered, "Yeah, and I love Paul Ryan ... If he had a fan club, I'd be the president of that." 

Walker also reiterated that he will not commit to serving a full second term if he's re-elected governor next November. Walker said it's his "calling" to be governor right now but, "I don't rule anything out."

USA Today asked Walker if he thinks both he and Ryan would run in the 2016 White House primary. Walker said it's an interesting question, and he's not sure what the future will bring.
