As Republicans from around the state gather in Milwaukee over the weekend for the 2018 Wisconsin GOP convention, Governor Scott Walker says he is proud of Wisconsin’s accomplishments. Governor Walker has been traveling the state, attending more than three dozen grassroots events, more than double he had attended prior to the convention in the 2014 campaign. Walker says he believes optimism and spreading the good news of Wisconsin will be crucial to his re-election.
This year’s convention also saw US Senate candidate Leah Vukmir receive the GOP Convention endorsement over Kevin Nicholson ahead of the August 14th primary election, where she received 72% of the vote. Wisconsin Democrats will also be in Milwaukee in an attempt to continue the “blue wave” momentum started with the Wisconsin Supreme Court election.
