Walker: no invite to speak at GOP convention

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he has not been invited to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and he doesn’t know if he will get a slot.

Walker told reporters this week in Pewaukee that whether he speaks this year “all depends on what the parameters are.”

He says, “If I can talk about my concerns about Hillary Clinton then I’ll probably talk about that.”

Walker will be attending the convention as a delegate bound to vote for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who won Wisconsin’s primary.

Walker has hedged on his endorsement of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in recent weeks.

Walker says, “I don’t know who is speaking exactly besides someone running for president and someone running for vice president.”

Walker spoke at the 2012 convention.

The convention will take place July 18-21.

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is expected to address the convention, as well as Reince Priebus, also of Wisconsin and the chair of the Republican National Committee.
