If anyone is surprised by the latest Republican entry into the 2016 race for president, then that person’s last name must be Van Winkle…as in Rip. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker confirmed early Monday that he’s running for the GOP nomination, making him the 15th entry into the crowded Republican field.
Shortly after 6 AM ET, the Walker campaign took to social media to make his candidacy official…or at least all-but-official, as the governor plans an appearance outside of Milwaukee later today to announce his candidacy live and in person. The campaign’s cat-out-of-the-bag tweet read as follows:
“I’m in. I’m running for president because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them.”
