Politico looks at one of the many groups of Republicans considering bids for the 2016 presidential nomination.
Scott Walker appears to be the frontrunner of this group.
Walker, 47, won national attention after beating back a labor-led 2012 recall attempt. He has pushed through a series of big-ticket bills, including requiring women to get ultrasounds before they have abortions and paving the way for more mining in the state. He’s now preparing a legislative agenda that includes mandating drug tests for welfare beneficiaries, repealing the Common Core education standards and cutting property taxes.
A good legislative session in 2015 puts him among the top choices.
