MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker raised three times as much campaign money as his main challenger during the final half of 2013.

Walker's camp reported raising $5.1 million from July through December, while Democrat Mary Burke raised $1.4 million and added $400,000 of her money.

Burke did not officially become a candidate for governor until October 7th, but she considered the possibility for months beforehand.

Her campaign spokesman, Joe Zepecki, said Walker is politically vulnerable in spite of his financial advantage. Zepecki said Walker's policies are not helping the middle class.

Friday is the deadline for this year's election candidates to submit reports of their campaign finances through the end of December.
