KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says he had no role in soliciting donations to an important conservative group which supported him during the 2012 recall effort.
Walker denied pressuring a mining company to make the $700,000 donation to Wisconsin Club for Growth.
His comments were made at a Saturday campaign event in Kenosha.
Walker says he wasn’t aware Gogebic Taconite had made the donation. He says his support for legislation helping the mining company shouldn’t be a surprise since he has been in favor of easing mining regulations for a long time.
