MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- About 7,200 copies of Gov. Scott Walker's book "Unintimidated" have sold during its first month in bookstores, an average of more than 250 copies a day.

The sales figures as of Monday were provided by Nielsen BookScan. The numbers put Walker on pace to sell about as many copies as the memoir of former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, another Republican Midwestern governor who released a book amid talk of a presidential run.

Pawlenty has sold about 12,000 copies of his 2011 book to date, according to Nielsen's figures.

Walker's "Unintimidated: A Governor's Story and a Nation's Challenge," was released in the midst of a nationwide media blitz on Nov. 19.

A spokeswoman for Walker's publisher, Penguin Group imprint Sentinel, says Sentinel is "definitely happy with the sales so far."
