Groups raise $32M to support Gov. Walker’s presidential run

Groups supporting Scott Walker’s run for president have raised $32 million to help the Republican Wisconsin governor’s campaign.

The largest haul reported Tuesday came from the Unintimidated super PAC run by close Walker advisers. It says it raised $20 million in its first three months of operation, before Walker formally entered the race last week.

Walker’s state committee, which financed his runs for governor and paid for activity leading up to the launch of his long-expected presidential campaign, raised $5.9 million in the first six months of the year, but spent $5.7 million of that.

A third Walker group created in January to support his exploration of a presidential run, Our American Revival, reported that it raised $6.2 million in the first quarter of the year.
