For Hillary Clinton, it was a van nicknamed “Scooby.” For Scott Walker, it will be a Winnebago, nickname TBD.
The Wisconsin governor announced he will spend next week touring the early voting states following his presidential announcement on Monday. After announcing his 2016 candidacy in Waukesha, Wisconsin, the Republican then will spend the next days traveling to Nevada, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa.
It’s in Iowa next Friday where he will begin a three-day Winnebago tour, the start of his pursuit to visit all of the Hawkeye State’s 99 counties.
Similarly, Clinton spent the days after her announcement on a road trip. She drove from her home in Chappaqua, N.Y., to her her first campaign event in Monticello, Iowa.
Visiting each of Iowa’s counties is a right of passage for candidates hoping to compete in the state. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2012, was the first to do it last time around.
Along with the ealy voting states, Walker's campaign announced he will also visit several Super Tuesday states in the coming weeks that come after the early contests.
