MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann says he has decided to put $1 million of his personal wealth into his campaign for Wisconsin governor.
In a statement Friday, Neumann said his personal investment would make sure the campaign has enough money to be successful.
Neumann is running for the Republican nomination against Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker.
Neumann is a businessman and philanthropist who served in Congress from 1994 to 1998.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is running as a Democrat to succeed Gov. Jim Doyle, who is stepping down after two terms.
