Gov. Scott Walker's nonprofit political group says it will
reimburse the state for costs related to the likely
presidential candidate's political travel.
American Revival spokeswoman AshLee Strong said Thursday
that the group will pay for the travel costs, including
those related to Walker's state patrol security detail.
taxpayers will not pay for any of the costs on political
trips, which include money spent on hotels, flights and
will continue to pay for official trips, like Walker's
recent trade missions to Europe.
commitment to pay for the costs came a day after Democrats
on the Legislature's budget committee slammed Walker for his
extensive travel. Republicans rejected a Democratic-backed
attempt to require quarterly reports on his travel.
