Gov. Scott Walker

WAUKESHA — Gov. Scott Walker plans to campaign in Super Tuesday states this month after formally declaring his bid for the presidency, a nod of acknowledgment that he expects a prolonged battle for the Republican nomination.

Walker intends to campaign in Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and South Carolina following a kick-off rally Monday, July 13th in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a senior Walker aide told CNN.

But the aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the schedule has not been released publicly, said he will also take a detour off of the well-worn path of traditional early voting states in his first full week on the campaign trail to visit Georgia, one of several southern states holding primaries on March 1. The March primaries are being billed as “Super Tuesdays” — because several states will be voting on the same day.

Later in the month, Walker will visit Tennessee, which also has a primary scheduled on the first Tuesday in March.

In addition, the Wisconsin Republican has scheduled July campaign stops in Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina — three states that will hold primaries on March 15.

CNN will host a GOP presidential primary debate on March 10 in Florida, which also is scheduled to hold its primary on March 15. The March 15 primary is significant, because it is the first time states will be allowed to institute a “winner-take-all” awarding of delegates.

Walker also plans to visit California in July, one of the final states to hold its primary in June 2016.
