MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Probable presidential candidate Scott Walker will tour historical sites and meet with Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs during his first trip to Israel.

Our American Revival, the committee raising money for Walker's potential White House bid, released details Thursday about the Wisconsin governor's agenda. The five-day trip begins Saturday.

Walker has no public events planned during the trip, which he's billed as a "listening tour." Walker says he plans to meet with government officials and others to learn more about the Middle East.

Our American Revival says Walker will tour historical sites by helicopter, including "various historical and strategically significant sites." Walker also plans to visit religious sites.

The trip is being paid for both by Our American Revival and the Republican Jewish Coalition.
