MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans are gathering to consider whether to endorse a candidate in the hotly contested governor’s race, with some arguing they shouldn’t pick a favorite before the August primary in the battleground state.

The top candidates in the governor’s race are slated to make their pitches for an endorsement before more than 1,500 delegates Saturday at the annual convention in the Madison suburb of Middleton.

But first, those delegates will decide whether to include a “no endorsement” option as suggested by one gubernatorial candidate and other activists.
