Gov. Walker, Tommy Thompson among Wisconsin statewide delegates

MADISON -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Gov. Tommy Thompson are among the 18 at-large delegates who will represent the state at the Republican national convention this summer in Cleveland.

The Wisconsin Republican Party released the delegate names on Tuesday.

Under state party rules, all 18 of them are required to vote for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the first round. They can only switch to another candidate if they are released by Cruz or he fails to get a third of the overall vote.

Walker has endorsed Cruz but said he would back whoever is the eventual Republican nominee. Thompson campaigned for Ohio Gov. John Kasich in Wisconsin.

Other delegates include Walker's wife, Tonette, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Attorney General Brad Schimel and state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.
