(Updated at 7:10 p.m.) Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a former Republican presidential candidate, will headline the The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Presidential Series Breakfast in Reston this week.
Walker will speak on his proposed technology policies and discuss how he will work with the technology sector in his presidency.
NVTC and CEA said they have extended invitations to other potential Democrat and Republican presidential candidates to address the region’s technology community as part of the Presidential Series. More events will be announced as candidates and dates are confirmed.
The event is Friday, Sept. 25, 8 to 9:15 a.m. (registration and networking begin at 7 a.m.) at the Hyatt Regency Reston, 1800 Presidents Street.

Walker is currently polling at about 2 percent, according to a recent New York Times/CBS News Poll. That puts him near the bottom of the field of Republican candidates. Prior to the first Republican debate, in August, Walker had been at about 10 percent.
