Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker enters 2016 U.S. presidential race
视频新闻:美国明星州长沃克参选总统 民调仅次于小小布什


今年47岁的沃克在美国政坛是位保守派政治明星,自2011年起担任威斯康辛州州长,任职期间最为人称道、也最受争议的政绩是制订削弱工会权力的政策。他修改政府预算,削减政府雇员福利,引来工会大规模示威,但也由此成为美国历史上第一个挫败由工会支持的罢免投票的州长,登上全国政治舞台。

在当天发布的竞选视频中,沃克突出了自己与工会较量、为本州人民谋福利的“战斗本色”,表示将通过竞选总统为美国人民的利益而战斗,并将赢得胜利。其竞选顾问里克·威利(Rick Wiley)表示,如果沃克能在华盛顿实现他在威斯康辛州开创的一半政绩,他将跻身美国有史以来最伟大总统之列。

担任州长期间,沃克曾推动威斯康辛州减税逾20亿美元,下调房产税,这些对保守派选民颇具吸引力。但他同时推动更宽松枪支政策、限制堕胎、削减教育开支,这些政策在竞选中料将引来争议。

目前沃克在共和党竞选人民调中排名第二位,仅次于前佛罗里达州州长杰布·布什,但他在选举关键州艾奥瓦州的民意支持率高于布什。

WASHINGTON, July 13 - Wisconsin State Governor Scott Walker on Monday announced his decision to enter the 2016 U.S. presidential election, becoming the 15th Republican candidate to join the race.

Walker delivered his campaign speech in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Monday afternoon, making such promises as to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare. He is said to have appeal among GOP conservatives and to be a rival for the Republican front- runner Jeb Bush.



Walker is also one of critics who have suggested the U.S. is offering too many concessions to Tehran in the negotiations for a deal to terminate the decade-old standoff over Iran's nuclear program.

Democrats hit Walker hard before his campaign speech. Earlier in the day, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused Walker of having made his name by "stomping on workers' rights."

Walker's campaign launch was attended by about 5,000 supporters. The 47-year-old, who is at his second term as governor, will be visiting the state of Nevada Tuesday, South Carolina Wednesday, New Hampshire Thursday and Iowa Friday through Sunday. He will hold at least 10 public events in Iowa alone, according to his campaign team.(Source:Xinhua English)
