Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker became the first 2016 presidential hopeful to open an Iowa office, the Des Moines Register reports.
A political organization created by Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, has leased the space at 2775 86th St. in Urbandale – an office with a storied Republican political history.
The strip-mall storefront, located behind a Panera Bread cafe, has been occupied over the years by campaigns for Terry Branstad for governor, Tom Latham for Congress, Bill Northey for agriculture secretary and other Iowa races as part of GOP Victory efforts. In 2012, it headquartered Michele Bachmann’s team for the Iowa caucuses and Mitt Romney’s general election campaign. It was John McCain and Sarah Palin’s Midwest regional campaign headquarters in 2008. Source: Des Moines Register
While I am not a big Scott Walker supporter, I would urge the Democrats not to just sit back and think the White House is Hillary Clinton’s to lose. He’s far more credible than Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee.
