Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is bringing his presidential campaign to Minnesota next week.
The Minnesota Jobs Coalition, a Republican-aligned political group, is holding a Tuesday evening fundraiser where Walker is scheduled to speak. It will be held at O'Gara's Bar and Grill in St. Paul.
It will be Walker's first trip to Minnesota since officially jumping into the presidential race last month. Given his proximity, many Minnesota Republicans consider Walker the frontrunner to win the state's presidential caucus next March 1.
Last week, state House Speaker Kurt Daudt took on the role of chairman of Walker's campaign in Minnesota.
