Walker presidential campaign owes $1.2 million

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's presidential campaign finished last year with a little more than a million dollars in debt.

Finance reports Walker filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission covering the fourth quarter of 2015 show his campaign owned $1.2 million as of Dec. 31.

He raised just under $600,000 over October, November and December and had about $153,460 at year's end. He raised $7.9 million for the year and spent $7.3 million.

Walker entered the presidential race in mid-July but dropped out in September after fundraising couldn't keep up with expenses of a campaign operation that grew to about 90 staffers nationwide.
