As expected, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin announced his run for president Monday, becoming the 15th major Republican to seek his party’s nomination in the 2016 race.
Walker made the announcement outside of Milwaukee in Waukesha, Wis. The Wisconsin governor has the distinction of winning election for his office three times in four years; he survived a recall election in 2012 over a law ending collective bargaining for most of the state’s public union workers.
In a video released early Monday, Walker declared that “America needs new, fresh leadership with big, bold ideas from outside Washington to get things done.”
