Out-of-state donors keep giving Walker cash
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Out-of-state donors are still pouring cash into Republican Gov. Scott Walker's campaign as next week's historic recall election looms.
Walker's latest campaign reports show he collected $5.9 million between April 24 and Wednesday. Almost two-thirds of that -- $3.7 million -- came from donors who listed an out-of-state address. Another $112,778 came from donors who didn't list enough information to determine their address.
State election officials hadn't released reports from Walker's opponent, Democrat Tom Barrett, as of Wednesday morning. Barrett's campaign says he's raised $3.4 million over the last five weeks.
Democrats angry over a Walker proposal to strip public workers of their union rights have forced the governor and four other Republican officeholders into recalls. The elections are set for Tuesday.
