Nearly half of Governor Scott Walker’s campaign fundraisers since April 1st have been hosted by people whose companies received financial awards from his administration.
Some call that troubling, while others say its nothing new in Wisconsin.
Jack Link, the owner of Jack Link Snacks of Minong, joins Chris Shult, the proprietor of Bevco Engineering of Waukesha County, and Jon Hammes, the developer of the Edgewater Hotel project, in hosting fundraisers for Gov. Walker within the past three months.
Each has also directly or indirectly benefited from financial awards doled out by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), which Gov. Walker chairs.
