Records show fundraising tactics of Wis. governor
MADISON, Wis. — Newly released records show Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign partnered with Republican lieutenant governor candidate Brett Davis in 2010 to tap wealthy donors who had already given all they could to Walker.
The move detailed in records released Wednesday was designed to bolster a potential Walker-Davis ticket but it fell apart when Davis lost in the primary.
The behind-the-scenes navigating of Wisconsin’s campaign finance laws by Walker staffers was revealed as part of a massive, 28,000-page release of documents that were collected during a criminal investigation into one of Walker’s aides.
Walker faces re-election this year and is considering a run for president in 2016. He was not charged with any wrongdoing in the investigation that closed last year with convictions against six of his former aides and associates.
