MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - We’re expected to find out Tuesday how much money Governor Scott Walker has raised for his next election that’s over 15 months away.
State campaign committees have a midnight deadline to file reports with the Government Accountability Board, showing how much they’ve raised and spent in the first six months of 2013.
The Republican Walker raised almost a half-million dollars in the final six months of last year. He had almost $800,000 on hand in January.
Walker is mixing business with fundraising during a trip to Colorado later this week.
No Democrats have announced plans to run against Walker in next year’s governor’s contest. Recent media reports said Democratic leaders want to recruit a single candidate and avoid a divisive party primary, as Walker glides through on the GOP side until next November.
Former Trek Bicycle executive and state commerce secretary Mary Burke is said to be seriously thinking about a Democratic bid. She has not created a campaign committee, so she does not need to file anything Monday.
