Fundraising numbers released in race for GovernorSubmitted: 01/31/2014
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Governor Scott Walker has raised more than $5.1 million in the last half of
2013, nearly triple what his Democratic challenger for governor brought in.

Walker reported the fundraising totals on Friday. His Democratic challenger
Mary Burke has said she will report bringing in nearly $1.8 million, which
includes $400,000 of her own money.

Burke is a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive and state Commerce Department
secretary.

Burke officially got into the race on Oct. 7 after months of contemplation.

Burke's spokesman Joe Zepecki says Walker has never had a problem raising
money, but he is politically vulnerable because his policies are not helping
the middle class.

Walker reports having $4.6 million cash on hand heading into this election year.
