TAMPA, FL- The rest of the nation will get to know some of the Badger State's biggest names over the next four days at the Republican National Convention.
And it begins with Governor Walker, who's worried his voice won't sound so great on Tuesday.
"I'm glad. If I got to pick a day to not have much of a voice, it's (Monday) and not (Tuesday) night (laugh)," said Walker to TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson.
"Even with a bit of whisper, people want to hear us," said Walker.
Walker believes people will want to hear how his hard fought recall battle in June will help Republicans in November.
"We prevailed with not only Republicans, Independents, even some discerning Democrats, that's the only way you can win -- we hope we can transfer that message to the Romney-Ryan ticket as well."
Romney is promising to create 12 million jobs in four years. Walker made a similar campaign promise of 250,000 which Democrats criticized as unrealistic.
"By putting a goal out it says he's serious about turning fixing the economy," argued Walker.
For now, Walker's role will be to raise money, and lots of it. He's already credited with bringing in millions.
"I like sharing whatever attention we got to help elected like-minded people."
Governor Walker will be sitting in the front row to watch VP candidate Paul Ryan give his big speech. He's unlikely to be texting him, but the two do share text messages.
"I try to reach out to him daily some times a couple times a day with just a word of encouragement, sometimes some scripture."
The biggest speech Tuesday night will be from Ann Romney.
