Scott Walker Officially Launches 2016 Presidential Campaign

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker slated Monday, July 13, to be the official day he announced his presidential ambitions. True to his word, Walker is now a GOP candidate for president.

Scott is known best for two major issues: 1.) He never finished college, and 2.) Winning a recall after fighting back against the hard-nosed, highly progressive unions in his state, per USA Today.

Walker figures to be a strong contender for the GOP nomination next summer amongst the ever-expanding Republican presidential field. Most on the right consider Scott and junior Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to be the staunchest conservatives currently in the race.

While former First Lady Hillary Clinton seems to have the Democrat nomination already locked up, the Republican side is wide open at the moment. What’s interesting is that even though Walker is the latest conservative to announce (and the 15th major name, according to CNN), he may not be the last, as Ohio Gov. John Kasich is still considering tossing his hat into the ring.

Walker now joins Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Rand Paul, former Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Chris Christie, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Gov. Rick Perry, former Gov. George Pataki, former Sen. Rick Santorum, and billionaire mogul Donald Trump among the more well-known declared names.

Here are some immediate reactions from Twitter.
