Candidate shells out $1M of own money for Governor's race

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann has put $1 million of his own money toward his campaign for Wisconsin's next governor, he announced Friday.

Neumann is seeking the Republican nomination for governor. He is running against Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker.

Neumann, a businessman and philanthropist, served in Congress from 1994 to 1998.

On the other side of the race, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will likely be the Democratic nominee to succeed Gov. Jim Doyle, who has chosen not to seek a third term in office.
