Walker headed to Vegas along with 2016 hopefuls

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is headed to Las Vegas for a weekend meeting that's attracting a host of Republican 2016 presidential hopefuls.

Walker is scheduled to speak at the Republican Jewish Coalition spring leadership meeting at the Venetian resort, which is owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Walker is to speak on Saturday along with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is also expected to attend the meeting.

Adelson donated $250,000 to Walker in March 2012 when Walker was facing a recall election. Normal campaign limitations did not apply during that time, allowing Walker to receive huge checks that normally would be barred.

While Walker explores a 2016 presidential bid, he's seeking re-election this November against Democrat Mary Burke.
