Nearly all the nation's Republican governors are set to be in Scottsdale for the next three days at the annual meeting of the Republican Governors Association.
Confirmed attendees include New Jersey's Chris Christie, Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and Rick Scott of Florida. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is also attending, but RGA officials say Wisconsin's Scott Walker and one other governor will miss the event.
The association is the main political organization for the nation's 30 GOP governors. The event at the Phoenician resort focuses on strategy and Republican public policy goals.
The meetings begin Wednesday and most will be closed to the press.
