Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a conservative hero since surviving a recall vote this year, has received a rousing welcome at the Republican National Convention.

Joining a string of GOP governors addressing the convention, Walker spoke Tuesday of how in June the people of Wisconsin had beat back what he said were the big special interests from Washington in rejecting the recall. That recall was initiated after Walker stripped most public employees of their collective bargaining rights.

Walker praised GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney for picking congressman Paul Ryan, also from Wisconsin, as his running mate, saying the selection showed that Romney had the "courage and passion to be an exceptional president."

Walker said Ryan's pick showed that the "R'' next to Romney's name stood for "reformer" as well as "Republican."
