Scott Walker Believes Sun Ain't Gonna Shine On Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is hot favourite to become the next US President, with William Hill currently quoting her at odds of 5/4- but the race amongst the Republicans to be her opponent is hotting up.

'Scott Walker has suddenly become a serious contender for the Republican nomination as punters have backed him from 12/1 to 5/1 second favourite to do so, and from 33/1 to 10/1 to become the next President' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

However, Hills make Jeb Bush the 2/1 favourite to land the Republican nomination, just ahead of Walker, with Marco Rubio 7/1 third favourite; Rand Paul 7/1; Chris Christie 12/1 and Ted Cruz 16/1.

'We thought a Clinton-Bush showdown was shaping up to be a certainty, but it is not looking quite as likely any longer' added Sharpe. Mrs Clinton is 1/3 favourite to be the Democrat candidate with only Elizabeth Warren at 6/1 attracting any serious support against her.

TO BE NEXT US PRESIDENT...5/4 Hllary Clinton; 4/1 Jeb Bush; 10/1 Scott Walker; 14/1 Marco Rubio; 14/1 Rand Paul; 18/1 Elizabeth Warren; 25/1 Chris Christie; 33/1 Joe Biden. Others on request.
