Walker Campaign Announces $826,542 Raised 

Wauwatosa. – Today, Scott Walker's campaign $826, 542 raised since the last reporting period.     


“Unlike Congressman Neumann and his millions in personal wealth, our campaign is fueled by everyday Wisconsin families ready to end the Doyle-Barrett legacy of sky-high taxes, out of control spending, and bigger government,” said campaign manager Keith Gilkes.  “Approximately 70% of Scott’s donations are from individuals giving $50 or less, with supporters not only contributing, but also organizing and volunteering - that’s the type of momentum that will show real results next Tuesday.” 

Walker finished the reporting period with $1.2 million cash on hand.  

Scott Walker serves as Milwaukee County executive.  He was elected eight years ago when he joined with everyday families in taking back their government after a pension scandal rocked the community, costing taxpayers millions.  After being elected on a promise clean up county government and spend taxpayer money as if it were his own, over the past eight years Scott and his wife Tonette have given over $370,000 of Scott’s personal salary back to the taxpayers.  Walker packs his own brown bag lunch to save money in his family budget, and has approached his county budget the same way, cutting out waste and doing more with less.  Walker has cut the county debt by 10%, cut the county workforce by 20% and introduced eight consecutive budgets without an increase to the property tax levyfrom the previous year – even announcing an a surplus in his most recent budget.

Walker and his wife Tonette live in Wauwatosa with their two sons, Matt and Alex.
