GOP presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker is reportedly canceling an appearance at the California GOP Convention next weekend. Walker is scheduled to appear at the CNN GOP presidential primary debate in Simi Valley, California on Wednesday.
Trail Guide’s Seema Mehta reports that Walker backed out of his speaking engagement scheduled for September 19.
Walker’s speech was supposed to be in front of hundreds of guests in Anaheim, California.
Fellow GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is scheduled to attend the party event on Friday.
Walker’s campaign did not confirm or deny this report.
Walker, who was once in first and second place in national polls, has recently slipped to seventh place in the latest Real Clear Politics poll average.
Trail Guide later heard from a Walker campaign spokesperson who said there was a change in his schedule, and he needs to go to Iowa and South Carolina instead.
