Burke raises $900,000 less than first reported
Walker raises $10.3 million in less than 3 months
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke has raised about $900,000 less over the past three months than her campaign originally said.
Burke’s campaign on Monday issued a press release saying she had raised about $10.2 million in the roughly three month period that ended Oct. 20. But in her official filing with state elections officials, made later Monday night, Burke reported raising about $9.3 million.
Burke spokesman Joe Zepecki says the $10.2 million figure referred to how much the campaign had raised to date, not counting $5 million that Burke herself contributed.
Gov. Scott Walker reported raising nearly $10.4 million over the same reporting period. He has raised about $25 million since the middle of last year, while Burke has brought in about $15 million.
The election is Nov. 4.
