MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker will be joining Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney when he campaigns in Janesville on Monday.
Walker's campaign spokesman Tom Evenson says Walker will be with Romney for the stop at Monterey Mills. This will be Romney's first visit to the state since he won the GOP primary in April. It also comes about two weeks after Walker defeated Democratic challenger Tom Barrett in a recall election.
Walker was in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. He said that his recall victory provides no assurance Republicans would carry Wisconsin in November. He said Mitt Romney "has a shot" in Wisconsin, but has to appeal to more than just Republicans and needs to hone his economic message.
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan also plans to attend the Janesville event. Ryan has frequently been mentioned as a possible vice presidential candidate for Romney.
