MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has named two well-known business leaders and top financial contributors to Gov. Scott Walker to an economic advisory team.

Trump’s campaign announced new members of his economic team on Thursday. They include Beloit billionaire Diane Hendricks, the co-founder and chair of ABC Supply and Liz Uihlein, president of Uline Corp., which is based in Pleasant Prairie.

Both Hendricks and Uihlein are also part of a Republican National Committee fundraising effort to support Trump.

Hendricks gave $5 million to a super PAC created to support Walker’s presidential bid, and Uihlein gave $3 million.
