MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin Republican says he’s withdrawing as a delegate to the national convention because of an emergency that forced him to use up vacation time.

Julian Bradley said Wednesday it was a “no brainer” for him to attend to the emergency that required out-of-state travel following the July 4 weekend. Bradley says he had been looking forward to attending the convention in Cleveland that begins Monday.

Bradley is the third Wisconsin Republican to withdraw as a delegate to the convention. Longtime GOP activist Mike Grebe stepped down, citing his dislike of presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump. And Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch stepped aside citing scheduling conflicts.

A replacement for Bradley has yet to be officially named.

Bradley is also running for the state Assembly in western Wisconsin.
