Tue, June 13, 2017: Trump helps Gov. Scott Walker raise $1 million

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker raised more than $1 million Tuesday evening at a fundraiser headlined by President Donald Trump in downtown Milwaukee.

The event required contributions of at least $1,000 for admission and $20,000 for a VIP seat and a photo with Trump and Walker. Some of the biggest names in Milwaukee-area business attended, as did a gaggle of Madison lobbyists.

Trump told guests the event raised $1.5 million for Walker’s next gubernatorial campaign in 2018, according to one attendee. However, that figure was not confirmed.

“That sounded high and seemed to grow throughout the night,” the source said. “It was definitely over a million.”
