Walker owes just under $1 million from presidential race


April 23, 2016


MADISON Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has cut the campaign debt from his failed presidential bid to just under $1 million.

His latest campaign filing this week shows Walker owes just over $952,000. That is down about $141,000 from the previous month. His debt stood at $1.2 million at the end of 2015.

Walker ended his 71-day campaign for president in September, after averaging spending $90,000 a day on the effort. He's been slowly paying off his campaign debts since, and earlier this month sent out a fundraising plea where he promised to give donors a T-shirt. But he couldn't guarantee size or color, so he suggested they could be used in a craft project.

Walker's latest Federal Election Commission filing shows he raised about $128,000 in the last month.
