Walker Scoops Up Ernst Strategist for 2016

Scott Walker’s political team has hired Republican strategist David Polyansky to run its ground game in the all-important state of Iowa. 

Polyansky comes fresh off Joni Ernst’s Senate campaign. On Tuesday, he was helping the newly-elected senator practice for her response to the president’s State of the Union address. 

Polyansky’s history in Iowa goes back to Mike Huckabee’s 2008 campaign: He helped orchestrate the former Arkansas governor’s surprise victory in the Iowa caucuses that year, and in then in 2012, while working for former congresswoman Michele Bachmann, he helped her win the state’s straw poll.  

Walker is in Iowa this weekend for the Iowa Freedom Summit cosponsored by congressman Steve King and Citizens United. The news was first reported by the Des Moines Register
