Wisconsin's Walker looks to Iowa to regain momentum

Posted: Updated:

ONAWA, Iowa (AP) - Scott Walker wowed Iowa Republicans in January at one of the first events of the 2016 campaign, a moment that shot the Wisconsin governor into the top-tier of GOP candidates for president.

But in the months since, Walker has slowly fallen back into the pack of more than a dozen seeking the GOP nomination.

Walker is looking to Iowa to regain his momentum. He was there for two days last week, retail politicking at diners and dives.

He's planning to make stops in all 99 Iowa counties between now and the state's leadoff caucuses in February, a classic campaign strategy that's paid off for candidates in the past.
