Wisconsin Republicans House Speaker Paul Ryan, Sen. Ron Johnson, and Gov. Scott Walker will not be in attendance when GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump appears in their state, according to The Hill.

All three have varied in their degrees of support for Trump.

Buzzfeed reports Walker told Wisconsin radio station host Jay Weber that he would like to see Trump shift focus toward the presidential race.

"I wish Donald Trump would just talk about Hillary Clinton and what he's going to do to make everyday Americans' lives better," Walker said.

Johnson has likewise expressed disagreement with Trump. During an interview on Wisconsin's WTMJ radio, Johnson called on Trump to apologize over his war of words with the family of Iraq war hero Capt. Humayun Khan.

Trump would not offer an endorsement for Ryan, who is up for reelection, saying, "I'm not quite there yet." He appeared to be echoing Ryan's own statement from May, when he said, "I'm not quite there yet" about endorsing Trump.

Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, said that the Republican nominee would support Ryan. His running mate Mike Pence added his support for Ryan's reelection.
