Governor Walker got 4 donations totaling $1 million
MADISON (AP) -
Gov. Scott Walker collected $1 million from four donors over a one-week period earlier this week, including another $250,000 from conservative Texas financier Bob Perry.
Walker's latest campaign finance reports filed with the state late Monday cover the period Dec. 11 through Jan. 17. Over those five weeks Walker amassed $4.5 million. Since the beginning of last year he has raised $12.1 million.
Walker is able to ignore the usual $10,000 limit per donor because state law allows those targeted for a recall to raise unlimited funds until an election is called. State election officials are currently reviewing 1.9 million petition signatures against Walker and five other Republicans.
The three others who gave Walker $250,000 each were Missouri residents.
