WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Wausau is getting ready for a visit by hundreds of Republicans this weekend.

The 2013 Republican Party of Wisconsin State Convention starts Friday and runs through Sunday at The Patriot Center in Rothschild.

Several high-profile speakers are on the agenda, including Governor Scott Walker, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Congressmen Sean Duffy and Paul Ryan.

The party is expecting a crowd of about 800 people to attend.

Organizers say there will be some talk about policy, but the annual gathering is more about energizing the base and creating the potential to reach more voters.
