MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is expanding his team of aides as he considers running for president in 2016.

Walker hired former Republican National Committee political consultant and Wisconsin Republican Party executive director Rick Wiley as an adviser.

A person with direct knowledge of Walker's decision told The Associated Press about the move, speaking on condition of anonymity Wednesday because Walker had not yet announced the hiring.

Wiley worked on the presidential campaign of Rudy Giuliani in 2008 and on George W. Bush's re-election in 2004. He did not immediately return an email or cellphone message seeking comment.

Walker was sworn into office for a second term Monday. He said last month he is seriously considering running for president, but won't make a decision until later this year.
