Gov. Scott Walker Enters Presidential Race

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has announced on social media that he’s running for president, tweeting “I’m in.”

Walker, a Republican who built a national profile largely due to his clashes with labor unions, also released a campaign video at the same time Monday declaring his entry in the race.

The video is heavy on images of Walker speaking to a crowd in an Iowa cornfield, as well as his 2010 battle with unions.

The video shows Walker talking about what he says are his “big, bold ideas from outside Washington” a likely reference to his efforts to weaken unions through a state law that strips them of bargaining rights.

Walker talks about “fresh leadership” and promotes himself as a “reformer, fighter and winner.”
