Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be the featured speaker at an endorsement rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Ricketts in Omaha on Jan. 27.
The event is set for 4:30 p.m. at the Thompson Center on the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus.
Walker, who became a national figure in 2011 when his proposed budget cuts and limitations on state employee collective bargaining rights stirred massive protests at the state capitol in Madison, survived a recall election in 2012.
He was elected governor in 2010.
