Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker declared his candidacy for president on Monday, casting himself as a “fighter” who muscled through an aggressive conservative agenda in a state that typically supports Democrats.
Republicans made their choice of who should take Michele Bachmann’s seat in Congress Saturday. Tom Emmer is a former state lawmaker who narrowly lost the governor’s race to Mark Dayton in 2010.
