Scott Walker has yet to officially announce that he’s running for president, but a political organization founded by the Wisconsin governor just leased office space in Iowa. Walker is the first candidate to set up shop in the state, which will hold its caucuses on February 1, 2016. The Des Moines Register reports that the group Our American Revival went with a strip-mall storefront in Urbandale that has a “storied Republican political history.” The office was used by John McCain, Michele Bachmann, and Mitt Romney in the last two presidential elections — and, more important, it’s “located behind a Panera Bread cafe.”
