Large contributions fuel Walker fundraising total

Twenty-six donors combined to give Gov. Scott Walker more than $2 million over a five-week period, according to a check of his campaign finance reports.

Walker’s campaign stressed he collected 21,443 contributions between Dec. 11 and Jan. 17 with 16,406 of them contributing $50 or less.

Still, 45 percent of the $4.5 million Walker collected during the two reporting periods filed yesterday came from those giving $25,000 or more. Most of his top donors also hailed from outside Wisconsin, according to a WisPolitics.com review.

That includes four individual donations of $250,000 each from: Sarah Atkins, a quality consultant with TAMKO Building Products in Joplin, Mo.; Davis Humphreys, president of TAMKO; Stanley Herzog, chair and CEO of Herzog Contracting Corp. in St. Joseph, Mo., which does asphalt paving and other construction; and Bob Perry, owner of Perry Homes in Houston, Texas.

Perry, one of the major donors to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in the 2004 presidential campaign, gave Walker $240,000 in a previous reporting period.

Walker is still in a period when donors can exceed the normal $10,000 contribution limit for individuals and $43,128 from PACs in a guv’s race.
