Walker announces his campaign for re-election in TV spot
Gov. Scott Walker released a campaign video Wednesday ahead a formal re-election announcement.
Gov. Scott Walker released a video on his Twitter account Wednesday to visually promote his upcoming run for re-election.
The minute-long video begins with Walker jogging in a Wisconsin T-shirt discussing his love for his home state and ends with him riding a Harley and asking the viewer, “Are you with me?”
This is Walker’s fourth time running for re-election. The first was in 2010, the second in 2012 after his recall vote and the third in 2014. This re-election, however, comes at a peak time.
It is his first re-election bid following his failed attempt for the presidency. It comes at a time of discourse between the two political parties, and the Democrats have made it a point to challenge Walker for his fourth term.
Currently, Matt Flynn, a former attorney and Democratic Party Chairman; Tony Evers, State schools superintendent; State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout of Alma; and Dana Wachs (D - Eau Claire) are only a few of the 10 Democrats declared for candidacy.
The Democratic Party plans to challenge Walker on Foxconn, unemployment rates, and the state’s two-year budget, all of which Walker also addresses within his campaign videos.
The short-form minute video and long-form
Walker has yet to release his formal statement for his candidacy, but it is expected to come within the next few days.
