Walker has built a national reputation in the party. His widespread support outside Wisconsin helped him raise more than $30 million in the face of a recall organized by those angered over his push to end collective bargaining for most state public employees. Republicans say Walker's victory in June affirms his efforts to rein in government spending.

The convention is Aug. 27-30.
