"If you don't want Hillary Clinton to be president, the only viable alternative is Donald Trump", Walker said.
In agreeing to speak at the RNC, Gov. Walker acknowledged he is rejecting the idea that Trump could still be replaced as the GOP nominee.
"I think there is a clear contrast", Walker said.
It's unclear when Walker would speak at the convention in Cleveland on July 18-21.
"It's just sad in America that we have such poor choices right now", Gov. Walker told 27 News on June 8, when talking about Trump and Clinton. Brady, Ditka and Tyson join a group of prominent political figures, including George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Mitt Romney and John Kasich, who plan to avoid the four-day event that usually represents a party's unity in the lead-up to the presidential election.
Warriors meet with Kevin Durant, decision expected soon
An argument for the Warriors: Durant would have the opportunity to not just win next season, but compete for titles for years. He'd still have dynamic point guard Russell Westbrook by his side, and Steven Adams and Enes Kanter are emerging young stars.
The announcement came just moments after James Comey's admission to the nation that, indeed, some people are more equal than others, and the governor indicated that he fully intends to cover the Clinton email scandal in his speech.
The group is behind the "Free the GOP" effort that seeks to release Republican delegates from the candidates to which they are bound and allow them to "vote their conscience" at the Republican National Convention later this month.
Brady's support for a Trump presidency has never been explicitly stated, though the Patriots quarterback has spoken about his personal friendship. However, a push to rally around Trump has recently gained momentum as the race against Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton heats up. "That's why I endorse Ted Cruz for president of the United States".
Alee Lockman, a spokesperson for the Republican National Convention, said the final schedule of speakers is still being finalized.
