Wisconsin's Scott Walker enters Republican race, vowing to fight for America

U.S. Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker formally announces his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination during a kickoff rally in WaukeshaBy Steve Holland and Brendan O’Brien WAUKESHA, Wisc. (Reuters) – Scott Walker cast himself as an anti-Washington reformer as he launched his 2016 Republican presidential campaign on Monday, vowing to fight with the same conservative conviction he used to battle unions as Wisconsin governor. Walker rose to national prominence by defeating a 2012 recall election that grew from his challenge to the collective bargaining process for most public employee unions in Wisconsin. Walker, in an announcement speech full of homespun stories about his humble roots, from flipping burgers at McDonald’s to buying discount clothes, became the 15th candidate in the wide-open race for the Republican nomination.
