Scott Walker Jumps In The Clown Car

Oh look, the Koch handmaiden makes it official!

Be still, my heart! All kidding aside, Scott Walker is a dangerous man, not to be underestimated:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker officially joined the 2016 presidential race Monday morning with a tweet and Facebook video, making him the 15th Republican who will compete for the GOP nomination.

I'm in. I'm running for president because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them. - SW— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) July 13, 2015

In a video released on Facebook, Walker speaks straight to camera and tells his audience America needs fresh leadership."Wisconsin, we didn't nibble around the edges. We enacted big, bold reforms and took power out of the hands of big government special interests, gave it to the hardworking taxpayers," he said.Weighing in on the other 14 candidates he will face for the GOP nomination, Walker says, "There are some who are good fighters, but they haven't won those battles. There are others who have won elections but haven't consistently taken on the big fights. We showed you can do both."

Walker will hold a rally Monday evening in Waukesha, Wisconsin, to make the announcement in person.
