Senate President Mike Ellis announced that Walker had requested to speak to a joint meeting of the Legislature at 7 p.m. that night. The address gives Walker a chance to outline his agenda for 2014 and serve as a springboard for his re-election campaign.

Walker is being challenged for re-election by Democrat Mary Burke, a former Trek Bicycle Corporation executive and state Commerce secretary.
