MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A new report shows the same special interests are hedging their bets in the governors race by donating to both Republican Scott Walker and Democrat Tom Barrett.
The Wisconsin Democracy Campaign report released on Wednesday shows that 311 lawyers, manufacturers, builders, bankers and others with a special interest donated to both Barrett and Walker between July 2009 and June 2010.
The donations totaled nearly $450,000. Walker got about $245,000 from the so-called double givers, while Barrett received about $204,000.
The largest donor was Dennis Klein, chairman of KBS Construction Inc., Madison. He gave $9,150 to Barrett and $5,000 to Walker.
The election is Nov. 2.[polldaddy poll=”3768295″]
