Wisconsinites to rally against Walker as he announces presidential bid

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is set to officially declare his candidacy for president next Monday and Wisconsinites are ready with a warning to the rest of the nation about the Republican's "dangerous agenda."

The rally against Walker will be held at 4 p.m. on July 13 at the Waukesha County Expo Center, 1000 Northwest Road, Waukesha.

People For the American Way, Voces de la Frontera, Americans United for Change, We Are Wisconsin, League of Conservation Voters and a coalition of more than 20 local and national grassroots activist groups are involved in planning the event.

Their goal is sharing personal stories to explain how his extreme policies have hurt families, workers, students, women, immigrants and the environment."

Walker has been raising money for months as he prepared to announce his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. He also has devoted a lot of time to traveling to early voting states, as well as traveling abroad.

The conservative Walker has a record that is anti-union, anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-voter and anti-gay.

He will announce his candidacy at the expo center at about 5 p.m.
