MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A recent campaign finance report shows Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has received money from at least 11 corporations that outsource jobs to other countries.

WKOW reports those companies donated $68,500 to Walker's campaign in the last six months. Companies including WellPoint, Caterpillar and 3M donated through their corporate PACs.

Walker has received more than $285,000 in total PAC donations.

Democratic challenger Mary Burke has received more than $351,000 in PAC donations. Most of her donations came from national and state unions, and none came from corporations that have outsourced jobs.

Outsourcing has become a heated topic in the Wisconsin governor's race with Walker repeatedly criticizing Burke for job outsourcing done by her family's company, Trek Bicycle.

Walker's campaign spokeswoman Alleigh Marre did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
