MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be delivering a keynote speech in October at a Republican leadership conference in Minnesota.
The Republican Party of Minnesota announced Wednesday that Walker will speak at the two-day Republican Midwest Leadership Conference in Bloomington which begins on Oct. 7.
The conference brings together about 1,500 Republican leaders and activists from Ohio, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota.
In addition to speeches by Walker and others, organizers say the event will also include training for party activists.
