Wisconsin: Walker raised $7M in last reporting period; $37+M overall

In fighting off the recall, Scott Walker raised almost $7 million in his last reporting period -- from May 22 to the end of June. Walker reportedly raised more than $37 million in all.

He ended the race with $1.6 million in the bank.

His opponent, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, raised about $2.5 million in the last weeks of the recall, spent $3.6 million and had $250,000 in cash left.

A recall election means another twist to the donation limits. With the recall election over, the limits are restarted and all these donors can give another $10,000 if they wish to the governor.
Couple of other reported amounts:

Lt. Gov Rebecca Kleefisch raised $277,000 in the latest period, spent $185,000 and had $123,000 on hand.
Republican Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine raised $78,000 in the final days before the June 5 recall elections. Wanggaard spent $181,745 in the final days in the election he lost to John Lehman, a Racine Democrat. 
In the final days, Lehman raised $51,929 and spent $97,000.
