Gov. Scott Walker raises $1.2M for re-election bid in July

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker's re-election campaign had about $7 million on hand as August was about to begin.

According to a report filed with the state Monday, the Republican Walker raised $1.2 million from July 1st through 28th -- and he spent $1.6 million.

So far this year, the governor has raised around $9.5 million in the hopes of shaking off a challenge from Democrat Mary Burke. The two were in a dead heat in the most recent Marquette poll.

Burke and fellow Democrat Brett Hulsey had not filed updated reports as of mid-morning.

Burke's latest report showed that she had around $2.5 million in the bank going into July, while Hulsey had $946 on hand.
