Walker Says He Was Unaware of $700K Donation

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) said that he played "no role in soliciting cash from a mining company for the Wisconsin Club for Growth during the 2011 and 2012 recall elections, adding that no one should be surprised that the pro-business governor backed legislation helpful to the firm," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Washington Post notes Walker's "aggressive efforts" to raise money for the Wisconsin Club for Growth, "which allegedly served as a de facto arm of his campaign, are the latest details to emerge about a controversial two-year investigation of whether Walker's campaign illegally coordinated with outside groups."
