Scott Walker

Monday, July 13, 2015 – 08:30 a.m.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker formally announced his entry into the GOP republican primary field on Monday morning.

Walker has a solid position to make the first debate cut and is polling strong in the lead-off state of Iowa.

Walker is likely the most vetted candidate in the field, successfully winning two election bids and a heavily-funded recall campaign.

The only remaining GOP contender to formally announce is Ohio Governor John Kasich.
