Madison, Wis – Governor Scott Walker’s campaign announced today that it has raised more than $5.1 million dollars in the most recent reporting period, with 46,976 individual donors. 79% of those were small dollar donors, with 37,356 donors contributing $50 or less.
“We have seen an outpouring of support for the Governor and the steps he has taken during his first year in office to lay the foundation for a more successful Wisconsin,” said communications director Ciara Matthews. “Wisconsin voters are readily contributing to our campaign to help us fight back against the baseless recall efforts lead by big-government union bosses. Governor Walker is proud that more than 37,000 donors contributing $50 or less will allow him to travel the state of Wisconsin to listen to business owners and taxpayers share their stories of how his reforms have put state government back on their side.”
The Walker campaign finished the quarter with a combined total of more than $3 million cash on hand in the recall and general campaign funds.
