    Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker is headed to New Hampshire for the first time in March.

    Walker will be giving the keynote speech March 14 at an event organized by the New Hampshire Republican Party. The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord.

    "We have enacted bold, successful reforms in Wisconsin and we have a great story to tell," Walker said in a statement issued by the NHGOP. "I look forward to sharing our common sense conservative message with grassroots activists."

    Walker, alongside former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is one of the only likely Republican presidential candidates who hasn't yet traveled to New Hampshire.

    "We are happy to have Governor Walker join us," NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn said. "He has proven that he is not afraid to stand up to hte liberal establishment and fight for conservative principles, no matter the consequence."

    Walker is scheduled to speak at a conservative summit in Iowa on Saturday, marking his first visit to that state since September.

    He just began his second term as Wisconsin governor.
