MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More than 60 percent of the donations Gov. Scott Walker has received from individuals since Dec. 11 came from outside Wisconsin.

An analysis of Walker’s latest campaign finance reports submitted Monday done by the government watchdog group the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign shows that 61 percent of his money came from out of state.

That includes $1 million he got from three Missouri donors and one from Texas over a single week earlier in January.

The Democracy Campaign says roughly half of the $4.5 million Walker raised over the past five weeks came from 33 individual donors.

Walker has raised $12.1 million since last year, the most-ever by a candidate for governor in Wisconsin beating his previous $10 million record set in 2010.
