JACKSON, Wyo. — Former Wisconsin Governor and 2016 presidential candidate, Scott Walker, will deliver the keynote address at the Teton County GOP’s Patriots Dinner on Friday, March 13 at Spring Creek Ranch.
“We are thrilled to be back in Wyoming to talk about the path to victory for Republicans in 2020 and the need for a balanced budget amendment in the U.S. Constitution,” Walker said.
Teton County GOP Chairman Alex Muromcew added, “This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear from a national leader on conservative fiscal policies and how we can set our nation on a financially sustainable path. We are honored to have Governor Walker at this year’s Patriots Dinner and welcome Republicans in Teton County and throughout the state to join us.”
In addition to Walker’s address, the evening will feature live music and a silent auction with proceeds benefitting the Teton County GOP. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and is scheduled to conclude at 10:30 p.m.
Gov. Walker was raised in the small town of Delavan, Wisconsin, where his father was a minister and his mother worked part time as a bookkeeper and secretary. In June 1993, Scott was elected to the state assembly. In 2002, he was elected to the Milwaukee County executive office. In 2008, he won re-election with nearly 60 percent of the vote.
On November 2, 2010, Scott was elected the 45th Governor of Wisconsin. He became the only governor in American history to survive a recall election on June 5, 2012. Scott was re-elected in 2014 and sworn into a second term on January 5, 2015.
Scott is currently Young America’s Foundation’s president-elect, a role he will take on full-time in early 2021. He also serves as the chairman of the board of trustees for the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars within the Smithsonian Institute, is a senior advisor to the National Taxpayers Union, chairman of the Institute for Reforming Government, the Finance Chairman for the National Republican Redistricting Trust, a speaker with Worldwide Speakers Group and is national honorary chairman of the Center for State-led National Debt Solutions.
