MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker plans to attend a weekend meeting organized by the political arm of billionaire conservative brothers David and Charles Koch.

Walker’s campaign spokesman Tom Evenson confirmed Tuesday that the second term Republican will be going to the annual winter meeting of the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce in Palm Springs, California.

That nonprofit group serves as the central hub for the Koch brothers-backed network of advocacy organizations.

Other potential 2016 White House hopefuls were also expected to attend.

The meeting comes as Walker is ramping up his travel schedule. He is scheduled to join other potential presidential candidates Saturday night at an event in Iowa and next month Walker is to speak at a conference in Washington, D.C., also expected to attract other potential 2016 candidates.
