comScore Scott Walker Starts Our American Revival PAC for 2016

Scott Walker Will Trade You Money for Reagan Quotes

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker became the third GOP hopeful to form a political action committee ahead of a potential run for the 2016 Republican nomination.

Our American Revival, Walker’s new 527 organization, is not a leadership PAC like those started by his rivals, and thus is not regulated by the FEC and cannot expressly campaign for him.

That may explain the more detached nature of its mission statement. “Too often, states have their hands tied by federal government overreach and micromanagement that blocks common sense solutions and reforms,” the site alleged, after leading off with a quote about federalism from GOP Patron Saint of Getting Elected Ronald Reagan.

Jeb Bush‘s Right to Rise PAC, announced at the beginning of the year, touted economic and immigration reform, while Chris Christie‘s Leadership Matters for America PAC, launched just yesterday, bemoaned America’s declining global influence.

Walker, who survived a bruising battle over public pensions in Wisconsin, instead went heavy on “promot[ing] policies that restore power to the states and their people.”

Of course if Walker were really the fearless leader our nation needs, the website would go big and just autoplay Dropkick Murphys.
