Gov. Walker sees Jeb Bush as front-runner in 2016 Republican presidential race

Despite enjoying high ranking in the recent polls, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker sees former Florida Governor Jeb Bush as the front-runner in the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination.

Neither Mr. Walker nor Mr. Bush has officially announced their decisions to run for the nation's top political position, but both are expected to make the announcement by the end of this month.

On Sunday, Mr. Walker said that Mr. Bush was "up front" because he would have more money than his opponents to spend during election campaigns.

In an interview on ABC's 'This Week', he said, "Governor Bush is still probably up there - up front - just because he's going to have more money than just about all of us combined, but we're feeling good."

While the former Florida Governor loomed large over the other Republican candidates in Iowa, Mr. Bush was 1,400 miles away in Maine to celebrate his mother's birthday.

Iowa is known as traditional proving ground for the candidates looking to represent ultra-conservative bloc inside the Republican Party's often fractured coalition. But this time, two of the leading rivals in this bloc of the party also have the support of establishment-minded Republicans, who will likely support Mr. Bush.
