MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says he has $1.5 million for his campaign for governor this year. Barrett announced his bid in November, after incumbent Jim Doyle said he would step down and other possible Democratic hopefuls shied away from the race. Barrett told supporters he raised over $750,000 after he announced his candidacy. His major Republican opponents, Scott Walker and Mark Neumann, have not said how much they raised in the last half of 2009. Walker, the Milwaukee County Executive, had $1.1 million as of last June 30th. Neumann, a former congressman from Waukesha County, is expected to report his fundraising amounts soon. Media reports say he’ll probably use some of his own money.
