MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to attend a rally with Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence in Wisconsin on Wednesday night.

The campaign stop in the Republican stronghold of Waukesha is Pence’s first solo stop since becoming Donald Trump’s running mate almost two weeks ago.

The rally was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday

Walker is a close political ally and friend of Pence, the governor of Indiana.

Walker had been tepid in his backing of Trump, but said last week that his choice of Pence as his running mate helped solidify his support.

Pence will be campaigning in the deepest Republican part of Wisconsin, an area that Trump must do well in if he hopes to win Wisconsin. The anti-Trump movement was strong there before Wisconsin’s primary.
