Walker is speaking at a luncheon hosted by the James Madison Institute, a conservative Florida-based think tank. Walker will be speaking at noon at the Ritz-Carlton.

Walker, a Republican, made headlines in 2011 for his controversial efforts to reduce Wisconsin's budget deficits, including requiring state workers to contribute more to the cost of their health insurance and pushing for limits on collective bargaining for public employees.
