Walker says money totals validate his campaign (11:01 a.m. 7/20/09)

Madison (AP) — Republican Scott Walker said raising $1.1 million in the first six months of this year shows that his campaign for governor “is for real.”

Reports filed Monday show Walker out-raised incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle by $200,000.

Walker said his strong effort raising money should remove any doubts from those who wondered whether he could raise the money needed to mount a successful campaign. Such concerns led to his dropping out of the governor’s race in 2006.

Doyle campaign spokesman Mike Edmondson said he believes the governor is in a “very competitive” position. But he said Doyle has been focused on his job as governor, not on raising campaign money.

Doyle has $2 million cash on hand and Walker has $1.1 million.
