Former Gov. Scott Walker, who is taking a job with the Young America’s Foundation in 2021, is terminating his state campaign finance account and spent his balance down to zero by the end of June.
Walker has said he won’t run for office in 2022 after starting his job as president of the organization.
Walker’s latest filing shows he spent $81,126 between Jan. 1 and June 30 to empty his account. That includes a $16,166 donation to the state GOP.
Walker’s other expenses included:
*$18,000 in consulting fees and $5,000 in legal fees for compliance/administrative;
*$13,568 in staff wages and benefits;
*$6,023 for candidate travel, including $4,607 to Wisconsin Aviation-Four Lakes Inc. in March;
*$807 to charity to divest the campaign of excess anonymous donations.
Walker is the most prolific fundraiser in Wisconsin history, raising $118 million through his state campaign account since Jan. 1, 2009, according to a WisPolitics.com tally. That doesn’t include the combined $33.7 million his presidential campaign and supporting groups raised for his failed bid, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
