Walker raises $5.1 million over 6 months

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. 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.
