Walker Has $2.6 Million For Recall Fight

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker says he has $2.6 million on hand to fight an effort to recall him from office.

Walker reported Monday that he had that much cash on hand as of Jan. 17, the end of the current period covered by the report. That is the same day that organizers of the effort to recall him say they submitted more than 1 million signatures to force an election.

They also submitted petitions to recall Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and four other Republican state senators.

Walker released a statement about his report, but the actual filing was not yet posted. He had until midnight to file it.

Walker says he raised $12 million since Jan. 1, 2011. He raised $2.5 million in the last three weeks of the year.

    Gee, all the negative vibes about union backed recall funds, and wham, Gov. Walker has $2.6 in the bank to run again. Gee, I wonder where that money came from? Koch Bros.?

The Fed’s have 1,115 ,at last count ,suspected illegal campaign contributions to investigate.He’s going to cost you an addition 9 million or more tax dollars as it is! His pals are trying to draw the timeline out even longer! YOU do the math!Gop’ers of all places and times NEVER saved poor people a dime in taxes,far from it!

      Agreed. And those of you here who think all donations are from millionaires, you’re wrong. Working people everywhere who believe in what Scott Walker is doing for Wisconsin are happily giving what they can. Thank you governor for having the bal ls to stand up to the uber left who want to destroy this country. I wish Minnesota had as good a governor as Walker.
