MADISON, Wis. — A recent campaign finance report shows Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has received money from at least 11 corporations that outsource jobs to other countries.
WKOW reportrd those companies donated $68,500 to Walker’s campaign in the last six months. Companies including WellPoint, Caterpillar and 3M donated through their corporate PACs.

Walker’s campaign spokeswoman did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
