Walker raises nearly $5.5 million over 6 months

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker raised nearly $5.5 million over the past six months for his re-election campaign and has nearly $6 million cash on hand.

His campaign reported the latest numbers Monday.

While the figures far exceed what any of the eight Democrats challenging him have brought in so far, they are down from what Walker raised over the same period four years ago when he was last up for re-election.

At this point in 2014, Walker raised nearly $8.3 million over six months and had $7.6 million cash on hand.

Since January 2017 Walker has raised about $12.6 million.

No Democratic candidate has yet to report raising more than $840,000 on the campaign so far.
