MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker raised nearly $5.9 million in the first six months of the year through a state committee used to finance his races for governor.

Walker reported the fundraising Monday to state regulators.

The money raised by his Friends of Scott Walker committee is separate from other groups he and his supporters have created to bolster his run for the Republican presidential nomination. Walker announced his presidential campaign last week.

Monday’s report shows that Walker raised nearly $5.9 million and spent almost $5.7 million over that time.

Walker also created a tax-exempt committee called Our American Revival to raise money as he explored a presidential run, and his backers have created a super PAC that can also raise unlimited amounts called Unintimidated.
