MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker plans to speak next week at a prominent think tank that denies the existence of man-made global warming.
Walker is scheduled to appear Aug. 9 at the Chicago-based Heartland Institute. His keynote speech is part of a dinner celebrating Heartland's 28th anniversary.
Heartland bills itself as discovering, developing, and promoting free-market solutions to social and economic issues.
Walker has been a hot ticket across the country at similar conservative groups, especially when he became the target of a recall effort last year.
Walker won the recall on June 5 by 7 points.
Heartland says in a release announcing his appearance that Walker's win was a victory for the taxpayers of Wisconsin.
