Scott Walker Forms New Committee Ahead Of 2016 Run


Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has formed a new committee and set up a website set to go live on Tuesday, The Washington Post reported.

The tax-exempt 527 committee will be called Our American Revival, the Post said.

Rick Wiley, a former political director for the Republican National Committee, will be the committee’s executive director.

“Our American Revival encompasses the shared values that make our country great; limiting the powers of the federal government to those defined in the Constitution while creating a leaner, more efficient, more effective and more accountable government to the American people,” Walker said in a statement announcing the committee.

Walker now joins former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in the group of potential Republican 2016 candidates who have formed committees as precursors to formally running for president.

The announcement of the Our American Revival comes after Walker was one of the speakers at this weekend’s Iowa Freedom Summit, which showcased a number of potential nominees.

Correction: This post originally said Our American Revival is a political action committee. We regret the error.
