Walker raises $13 million in recall
MADISON, Wis. -
Gov. Scott Walker's campaign said he raised more than $13 million from mid-January through last week.
The governor's campaign said the money came from a total of 125,926 contributions. Walker has raised more than $25 million since Jan. 1, 2011, shattering the record for fundraising by any candidate for state office in Wisconsin. Walker himself set the record when he raised $10 million on his way to victory in 2010.
Democrats are trying to oust Walker and five other Republicans from office. The recall efforts were sparked in part by a law that restricts collective-bargaining rights for most public employees.
