Scott Walker in Appleton 3-9-2016

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who briefly ran for president last year, is scheduled to make three campaign stops Friday across West Virginia with GOP gubernatorial candidate and state Sen. President Bill Cole.

Walker is vice chair of the Republican Governor’s Association.

They are scheduled to hold a rally in the morning in Bluefield, the hometown of Cole, an auto dealer who has led the state Senate’s recent Republican majority for two years.

Later rallies are scheduled at noon in Charleston and late Friday afternoon in Morgantown.

Cole faces Democrat Jim Justice in the Nov. 8 election.
