Democrats report raising $394,000 since Dec. 10


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is reporting that it raised nearly $400,000 since Dec. 10.

The party was a leader in the circulation of petitions to recall Republican Gov. Scott Walker and five others.

Reports the party planned to file Tuesday with election regulators show that it raised $394,000 in the final five weeks of the recall campaign which ended Jan. 17. Over that same period, the state Republican Party reported raising about $243,000.

Recall organizers say they turned in 1.9 million signatures against Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four other Republican state senators.

The process of verifying those signatures is ongoing.

Walker also plans on filing an update to his campaign fundraising since mid-December. His previous report showed he raised $5.1 million as of Dec. 10.
