Not one of Wisconsin's top three Republican politicians will greet Donald Trump when he arrives in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Friday for a campaign stop. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) announced Wednesday that he'll be in northern Wisconsin for meetings about recent flash flooding, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has said he'll be further south in Wisconsin in his district for the day, and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) kept his excuse vague, simply citing "prior commitments."
Their excuses came just one day after Trump hesitated to endorse Ryan in his primary next Tuesday. Echoing how Ryan once waffled about endorsing the Republican presidential nominee, Trump said he's "not quite there yet."
Walker, Ryan, and Johnson have all endorsed Trump, though The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel pointed out they've also "distanced themselves from many of his controversial comments."
