Barrett has raised $750k for governor's race


MADISON (WKOW) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says his campaign raised more $750,000 in the last month and a half of 2009.

Barrett announced in November he was running for governor.

The Democrat told supporters he now has $1.5 million in the bank for his campaign to replace Gov. Jim Doyle, who decided last year not to seek a third term. He said the fundraising came in the 47 days following his Nov. 15 decision to run for the state's top office.

Barrett's top challengers, Republicans Scott Walker and Mark Neumann, have yet to release their fundraising totals for the final six months of 2009. As of July 2009, Walker campaign account had about $1.1 million in it.
