Good News: Walker For President
In the clearest terms yet, Gov. Scott Walker and his key advisers have begun detailing his plans to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
On Thursday, Politico reported that Walker is “taking active steps toward a presidential campaign that would launch next summer” and would “contrast his record of conservative achievements in a swing state with paralysis in Washington.”
“I think there’s going to be a hunger for a leader who can actually get things done,” Walker said.
He also told U.S. News & World Report in an interview Thursday that his wife and two sons, Matt and Alex, are supportive of a White House bid in 2016.
“There are certainly enough clues that he’s thinking about running,” said Joe Heim, a UW-La Crosse political science professor. “To me, it’s clear that he is making initial moves toward that.”
Walker’s comments Thursday are the latest and most definitive he has made to national media about his presidential considerations since being re-elected two weeks ago by a nearly 6-point margin.

Walker is my choice for governor in 2016.
First, he is a true conservative.
Second, he has shown he can win, especially in Blue States.
Third, he is a far better choice than Hillary Clinton.
Fourth, he is a governor and has experience in being a chief executive.
Finally, the democrats and liberals hate him and he has kicked their ass at least 4 times, so it will be an interesting race.
So, run, Scott, run.
