Republican Governor Scott Walker will run for a third term in office. Walker kicked off his candidacy at a Saturday event at Weldall Manufacturing in Waukesha. The governor says his campaign will be based on ensuring everyone in Wisconsin shares in the economic prosperity. He says he is more optimistic about the future now than ever before — but he feels there’s more to be done. There is no clear Democratic front runner ready to take on Walker in the November 2018 election. If he wins, Walker will be only the second Wisconsin governor elected to a third term.
