Walker outraises Evers in August, has more money on hand

Republican Gov. Scott Walker has outraised opponent Tony Evers in August, despite an influx of cash for the Democrat after his primary victory.

Walker reported Tuesday raising $2.3 million for the month compared with $1.9 million for Evers.

Walker also had more than twice as much cash on hand heading into September. Walker had $4.1 million compared with $1.6 million for Evers.

The election is six weeks away on Nov. 6.

Walker has had a massive fundraising advantage throughout the campaign. He had raised $6.1 million over the first six months of the year compared with just $605,000 for Evers, who was battling through an eight-person Democratic primary.
