Gov. Scott Walker, R-Wis., will be a featured speaker at a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in March, the group announced to supporters Monday -- the latest step by Walker to continue building his national profile within the Republican Party.

Walker will speak March 29 at the RJC's spring leadership meeting in Las Vegas, according to an email obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Others slated to speak at the three-day meeting include former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Ambassador John Bolton.

For Walker, the event helps increase his national name recognition as he considers whether to run for president in 2016, and to bolster support within the Republican Party for his gubernatorial campaign this year.

Walker has recently been stepping more out of Wisconsin and onto the national political stage. Earlier this month, Walker endorsed Pete Ricketts, a candidate for governor in Nebraska and the son of major GOP donor Joe Ricketts. And Walker will travel this week to Texas for a fundraising event at the home of Harlan Crow, a billionaire and high-profile party donor.
