Burke raises about $1 million less than said

Posted: Updated:

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke has raised about $1 million less than her campaign originally said.

Burke's campaign on Monday issued a press release saying she had raised about $10.2 million in the roughly three month period that ended Oct. 20. But in her official filing with state elections officials, made later Monday night, Burke reported raising about $9.3 million.

Burke spokesman Joe Zepecki says the campaign is working with the state elections board on the issue.

Gov. Scott Walker reported raising nearly $10.4 million over the same reporting period. He has raised about $25 million since the middle of last year, while Burke has brought in about $15 million.

Of that, Burke has loaned her campaign $5 million of her own money.

The election is Nov. 4.
