“I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there."

Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker was asked in an interview by CNN's Dana Bash if being gay is a choice.

At first Walker didn't appear to want to answer the question.

“That’s not even an issue for me to be involved in,” Walker said during the "State of the Union" segment Sunday. “The bottom line is, I’m going to stand up and work hard for every American regardless of who they are, no matter where they come from, no matter their background ... no matter whether they vote for me or not.”

But Bash pressed, and then Wisconsin's governor said he doesn't know.

“I don’t have an opinion on every single issue out there,” Walker said. “I mean to me that’s — I don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that question. So I’m saying, from an opinion standpoint, I don’t know what the answer to that is. And I’m going to spend my time focused on things that I do know and what I can work on.”

Bash's question on whether being is a choice came after a back-and-forth on gay Boy Scout leaders, which Walker seemed reluctant to comment on. He noted, however, that “one thing that people find unique, I guess, whether you like it or not, is I actually answer questions.”

To which Bash replied, “But you’re not answering this one.”
