MADISON  -- Gov. Scott Walker will not be joining presidential nominee Donald Trump at two campaign stops in Wisconsin next week.
 
Trump on Thursday announced that he will be campaigning Monday in both Green Bay and West Allis. The stops come after House Speaker Paul Ryan said he would not campaign or defend Trump after crude comments he made about women came to light.
 
Walker was previously scheduled to be in New Jersey to speak at a national training event for Republican candidates and will not be in Wisconsin.
 
There's no word yet on whether Republican Sen. Ron Johnson will appear at either stop. His campaign spokesman did not immediately return an email.
 
A Marquette University Law School poll this week showed Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Trump in Wisconsin by 7 points.
