Republicans had no lack of choices for their presidential nominee and today, Scott Walker entered the competitive race giving them one more.
The Wisconsin Governor said “I’m running for president to fight and win for the American people,” in a campaign video released early Monday increasing the GOP field of candidates to 15.

Gov. Walker is best known for his victories over public sector unions. Memories of those victories have started to fade among the GOP faithful and he’ll need to ramp up the campaigning to regain time and ground lost by entering this late in the race.
The latest Real Clear Politics average of polling data shows Walker almost 6 points behind GOP front-runner Jeb Bush.
