Walker to Announce Presidential Run Next Month
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/26/2015
Presumed presidential contender Scott Walker may soon be ready to formally announce his intentions to join the crowded field of Republican candidates running for the White House. He said Thursday that an announcement will likely happen on the week of July 13.
Polls by RealClear Politics show that Walker is in second place among the large field of GOP presidential candidates, trailing front-runner Jeb Bush.
Walker, who is 47, has been serving as governor since 2011, where he became a polarizing figure after proposing to cut the collective-bargaining rights of teachers and other public employees in the state.
He was re-elected last year and survived a recall election in 2012.
