Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is officially in the race.
Walker's office issued a statement Thursday that the sitting governor will run in the 2018 election.
“Our bold reforms have delivered results for Wisconsin’s hard-working families, from lower taxes to record investment in our classrooms – but there’s more to be done. I’m ready to continue the fight and keep Wisconsin moving forward,” Walker said in a statement.
The official kickoff event will be held on Nov. 5 at Eldall Manufacturing, Inc. in Waukesha, followed by a dozen additional events across the state that week, according to the campaign.
