MADISON (WKOW) -- Embattled Governor Scott Walker gets help from a few big names.
Donors helped Walker shatter Wisconsin's political fundraising record as he faces a recall election this spring. Campaign finance reports filed Monday show Walker raised a record $13.1 million between January 18 and last week.
Among his top benefactors are Diane M. Hendricks, founder of Beloit-based American Builders and Contractors Supply Company; Sheldon Adelson, CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Casino; and Richard DeVos, owner of the Orlando Magic basketball team and co-founder of the Amway Corporation.
Five other donors gave Walker $100,000 each.
