“My record shows that I know how to fight and win”, Walker is expected to say. The video includes Walker speaking directly to the camera touting his willingness to take on big fights.

“Scott Walker – more than any of the candidates, I think – has to win Iowa”.

“Since I’ve been governor, we took on the unions and won”, Walker said. Walker said “After a great deal of thought and a whole lot of prayer, we are proud to announce that I am officially running to serve as your President of the United States of America”.

He also has said he would nullify any previous agreement that allows Iran to develop a nuclear weapon and secure the border with Mexico.

He then demanded that Republican legislative leaders deliver an extreme 20-week abortion bill to his desk that included no exceptions for rape or incest – which is what they did this past week. The two met during karaoke night at Saz’s, a Milwaukee bar known for its barbecue, writes The Washington Post. His three governor’s races have also left him with a massive donor database – more than 300,000 names – that have helped his shatter state fundraising records. “But they wont get that from Scott Walker”.
