Discussion of what went wrong, and how to make changes, while also firing up activists ahead of the 2020 presidential race will be the focus of the meeting.

The theme is "A New Day. A New Party." The convention starts Friday.

The defeats of Gov. Scott Walker and every other statewide Republican candidate last year, combined with former House Speaker Paul Ryan's decision to retire after 20 years in Congress, leaves a fundamentally changed Wisconsin Republican Party.

Wisconsin is expected to be a key battleground state in the presidential race.
