MADISON, Wis. (AP) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Wisconsin Republican Party convention next month in Green Bay.

The Janesville Republican is scheduled to speak May 14 at the annual gathering. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and a host of other GOP office holders are also expected to speak to nearly 1,000 Republicans.

Retiring U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble is slated to serve as chairman of the convention, which comes two months before the national GOP convention in Cleveland. All of Wisconsin’s delegates to that convention will have been named before the state gathering.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party convention is June 3 and June 4, also in Green Bay.
