Walker To Keynote Midwest GOP Conference

Republican hero Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker crosses the state line in October to speak to a GOP Midwestern conference.

Walker joins some of the party’s presidential candidates in the GOP Midwest Leadership Conference Oct. 7 and 8 in Bloomington.

“Despite millions of dollars and man hours spent by the Democrat Party and its allies on the Wisconsin recall elections, Republicans maintained their majority status in the Wisconsin Senate,” Minnesota GOP Chairman Tony Sutton said.

The Tuesday election showed that Wisconsinites support Walker, Sutton added. “Like our own Republican legislators, Gov. Walker and Wisconsin Republicans are not just talking the talk when it comes to reducing the cost, size and scope of state government; they’re walking the walk.”

Many Minnesota Republicans crossed the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers to help western Wisconsin Republicans in the recall fights.

The Midwest conference is expected to attract 1,500 Republican leaders and activists from Ohio to North Dakota.
