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.

    NO Walker might not be the next Anthony Weiner.That bulge attendees will see,is actually Depends! Losing two out of six in Republican districts is NO BIG WIN for Walker.He can say it is,but the battle of the bulge is just a few months away for the GOP Demander in Chief ! He is toast,he is gone! Everyone but Walker can see it coming!The recalls were a net LOSS for the Republicans.Even creative redistricting for the next election will not save their majority of ONE! They are TOAST!

      Excellent comment! It does represent a gain for the union workers. They positioned themselves to pose a threat, and this was accomplished. I stand by my comment which is an invite, as written below.

      There is no need to say this. It never goes over well. Please don’t.

    The result of the events held last eveing by the Wisconsinites recall were a good reason to suggest that Wisconsins’ greater talent take up residency in this state and form an alliance of rebuilding a working economy and safe communities.

    Alternatives are a fact of life. There is always a better way to accomplish everything. There are times when we have to lose something before we know that we didn’t lose much.

    I commend the union workers for not only trying, they were the first to set an example for everyone who just sits back in wait. We can use a few more Minnesota. Minnesota republicans can migrate toward the Walker way of doing things, and let the suits perform the tasks of the union workers themselves.

    Apparently, the unionized public worker wasn’t valued strongly in Wisconsin, so the change could do both states very well.

    I have some notes on my speech I been working on that I’d like to share. People with money create jobs; even though they have not and are not now, it looks like they are hanging on to their money we gave them in tax breaks, someday they will, and all those who cannot give any more to support those who will produce jobs someday, not now, we appreciate your sacrifice and suffering.
