MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - We should know Tuesday where the major state election candidates are getting their campaign money.
Midnight is the deadline for those candidates to file their latest financial reports with the state Government Accountability Board.
The most anticipated reports are for the governor's and attorney general's races. Last week, Republican incumbent Scott Walker said he raised $8.3 million in the first half of this year, and he had just over $7.5 million on hand as of June 30th.
Democrat Mary Burke reported raising almost half as much as Walker, or $3.6 million. She only had about a-third as much on hand as the incumbent.
State Assembly Democrat Brett Hulsey of Madison is also running for governor, and had not released his numbers as of mid-day.
In the attorney general's race, Democrat Jon Richards leads the money race of those who've filed so far. He had $170,000 in his war chest, and Jefferson County DA Susan Happ had about $121,000.
The third Democrat, Ismael Ozanne, had not released any figures. Neither had the only Republican in the race, Brad Schimel.
