MADISON, Wisconsin — Gov. Scott Walker says he thinks eight to 10 years is the appropriate amount of time for a person to remain in the same public office.

Walker was asked Monday whether he expected this would be his last campaign for governor.

Walker says, "I certainly am not going to run for four terms."

Walker has refused to promise to serve a full second term if re-elected in November. He was asked about it again Friday during a debate with his Democratic challenger Mary Burke, saying his plans are to serve four years if elected.

Walker said Monday, "I'd like to just finish off this next four-year term and then we'll see what plans may be next."
