Lt. Gov. Kleefisch, Grebe dropped as Republican delegates

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and former Bradley Foundation chairman Michael Grebe have been replaced as Wisconsin Republican delegates to the national convention in Cleveland later this month.

The state Republican Party on Friday announced an updated list of delegates. Spokesman Pat Garrett says Kleefisch had scheduling conflicts, but he did not know why Grebe dropped out.

Kleefisch and Grebe are being replaced by Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and longtime Republican activist Don Taylor.

They will serve among the 10 at-large delegates who are bound to vote for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the first round of balloting because Cruz won Wisconsin's April primary.

Four alternate delegates were also replaced. Those removed were Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke, former Gov. Scott McCallum, former U.S. Rep. Mark Green and David Karst.
