Contact: Ciara Matthews
Madison, Wis. – Governor Scott Walker’s campaign announced today that it has raised more than $4.5 million in the most recent reporting period from a total of 21,443 contributions. 16,406 of those contributions were $50 or less, representing 76.5% of the overall number of contributions.
“Governor Walker's message of moving Wisconsin forward continues to resonate with voters,” said communications director Ciara Matthews. “It is this message, and the success of the governor's reforms, that have inspired people to contribute to his campaign in overwhelming numbers. These donations will allow us to fight back against this baseless recall and ensure Governor Walker can continue to lay the foundation for a more successful Wisconsin and keep government working on the side of taxpayers.”
The Walker campaign finished the quarter with a combined total of more than $2.6 million cash on hand in the recall and general campaign funds. The campaign has raised more than $12 million since January 1, 2011.
