MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's campaign says he raised more than $13 million from mid-January through last week as he fights a recall effort.
The governor's campaign says the money came from nearly 126,000 donors.
Walker raised $13.1 million between Jan. 1 and April 23, eclipsing his own record of $12.1 million in fundraising for a state office he set in 2011.
Democrats are trying to oust Walker and five other Republicans from office as payback for passing a law last year that stripped most public workers of nearly all their union rights. A primary election is set for May 8, with a general recall election to follow on June 5.

    And that is from those who want to contribute. I am sure the number is 10 times as man who will vote for him.
