Gov. Walker’s presidential campaign debt repayment slows in April; $900,000 debt remains
MILWAUKEE — Gov. Scott Walker’s failed presidential campaign remains nearly $900,000 in a debt eight months after he abandoned his White House bid, according to the most recent federal filing.
Walker’s campaign took in $70,930 in April, down from $127,649 a month earlier. Walker has been renting his donor list to other candidates, but that source of income shrank in April.
Walker has said he wants to repay the debt by the end of 2016 and turn his attention to deciding whether to run for a third term as governor in 2018. However, at April’s pace, it would take Walker into 2017 to retire the debt.
