Governor to head to fundraisers in Seattle, New York City

New York event includes potential presidential candidates

MADISON, Wis. - Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is headed to Seattle on Thursday and New York City later this month.

Walker will be attending a Sept. 23 fundraiser in New York City for the Republican National Committee along with three other potential 2016 presidential candidates. That event is being hosted by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Jets owner Woody Johnson.

Walker is scheduled to be joined at the fundraiser by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

The event Thursday is a fundraiser for the Washington Policy Center, a conservative think tank in that state.

Local union members and other activists in Seattle are scheduling a protest of Walker's appearance there, saying his "divisive anti-labor, job-killing, environment-damaging policies aren't welcome in Washington."
