MADISON, Wis., April 15 (UPI) -- Wisconsin Republicans are going to vote at the next state GOP convention on whether to secede from the United States.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican who is possibly considering a 2016 presidential run, disagrees with his party on this matter.

"I don't think that one aligns with where most Republican officials are in the state of Wisconsin -- certainly not with me," Walker told reporters last week.

Joe Fadness, executive director of the state Republican Party, has also said that he does not support the move to secede.

The resolution made it past committee on April 5, so it will be submitted for an up or down vote at the Republican convention May 2-4.
