Gov. Walker will not accompany President Obama to Master Lock

MADISON (AP) -- In a change of plans, Gov. Scott Walker will not be accompanying President Barack Obama on a visit to Master Lock in Milwaukee.

Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie said Wednesday that the Republican governor is recovering from a "nasty case of the flu" and is canceling his plans to be with the president at the padlock maker.

However, Walker does plan to follow through with plans to greet the president upon his arrival at the airport in Milwaukee.

Obama's visit to Milwaukee is his first to Wisconsin in more than a year. Walker has been attempting to tie his fate in a probably recall election with Obama's chances of winning Wisconsin in November.

Walker said in a Tuesday message on Twitter that he was sick with an upset stomach.
