In a stunning about-face, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has agreed to speak at the Republican National Convention later this month, declaring that a vote for anyone other than Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump is a "de facto vote" for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
"I think there is a clear contrast," Walker told ABC 27 WKOW in Madison, Wisc.
"For those who raise concerns like I just did about the judgment of Hillary Clinton in terms of not just those emails, but some of the other issues out there, really there's only one alternative."
Only two weeks ago, Walker told New York Magazine
that delegates to the convention should be free to vote their conscience, and he became a key ally of the stop-Trump campaign that is attempting to unbind delegates at the convention if they feel a moral aversion to the candidate they're supposed to support.
Walker acknowledged that his agreement to speak at the convention means he is rejecting the idea that Trump could be replaced as the GOP nominee.
"The bottom line is most delegates are headed down the path that I am, which is that it's a clear contrast. It's either gonna be Hillary Clinton or it's gonna be Donald Trump and we have to decide who we want it to be."
Many prominent Republicans have declared they will not be attending the conference, among them George Bush, Mitt Romney and George W. Bush.
