Governor Walker raised $5.1 million since July


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker has out-raised those working to recall him.

Reports filed on Thursday show the governor has raised $5.1 million since July. The Democratic Party and a coalition have raised about $1.4 million.

Governor Walker reported spending $4 million since July.

The Wisconsin state law allows Walker to raise unlimited amounts while petitions to recall him are being collected. Normally, candidates have a $10,000 cap in a single year from the same donor.

The Democratic Party reports spending about $540,000 on the recall effort.

The United Wisconsin Coalition announced on Thursday they collected 507,000 signatures to date. They need to collect 540,000 by January 17 to trigger a recall election. They hope to collect more than 720,000 in that time.
