Gov. Scott Walker will formally announce his re-election bid Nov. 5 in Waukesha with more than a dozen stops around the state in the days to follow, his campaign said today.

The formal kick off will be at Weldall Manufacturing Inc., a welding and fabrication company that Vice President Mike Pence visited last month.

The campaign did not release details of the other stops that week, though one in Janesville Nov. 7 has been posted at

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of several steps Walker has taken in recent weeks to cue up his re-election bid. That includes the release a 60-second digital ad this week.

“Our bold reforms have delivered results for Wisconsin’s hard-working families, from lower taxes to record investment in our classrooms — but there’s more to be done,” Walker said. “I’m ready to continue the fight and keep Wisconsin moving forward.”
