State GOP convention this weekend


ROTHSCHILD (WKOW) -- This is a big weekend for Wisconsin's Republican party; the state convention is being held in Rothschild, near Wausau.

And it's getting more national attention than it normally would, given that two potential GOP presidential candidates will be there.

Governor Scott Walker and Congressman Paul Ryan will speak at the state convention on Saturday.

And national GOP chairman Reince Priebus will be there, too.

Some of the other names being mentioned early as possible GOP presidential candidates are Florida senator Marco Rubio and that state's former governor, Jeb Bush.

Also, Texas governor Rick Perry, who tried last year and Texas freshman senator, Ted Cruz.
