Madison -- Governor Scott Walker reported Thursday raising more than $5.1 million for his campaign as he faces a looming recall effort against him.
“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,” spokeswoman Ciara Matthews said. “Wisconsin voters are readily contributing to our campaign to help us fight back against the baseless recall efforts led by big-government union bosses."
Because a recall effort has been launched against him, Walker can raise unlimited donations for fighting the recall effort. Normally, candidates for governor in Wisconsin can only raise $10,000 from a single contributor.
Walker's campaign has more than $3 million in cash on hand.
