MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is headed to London for a trade mission that comes on the heels of a similar trip last week by another potential Republican presidential candidate, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Walker’s trip runs Monday through Friday. It’s his second oversees trade mission and comes as he’s tries to bolster his foreign policy credentials.

Walker’s spokeswoman, Laurel Patrick, says the trip is primarily focused on “private meetings and factory tours focused on attracting foreign direct investment to Wisconsin.” She calls it a business trip, “not a photo op.”

More details about Walker’s itinerary are expected to be released later Monday.

Walker’s only known public event so far is a speech Wednesday at the Chatham House entitled, “Building Global Partnerships for Stronger Local Economies.”
