Out-Of-State Money Flows Into Walker's Campaign

Senator Bob Garton's Republican challenger in Senate District 41, Greg Walker, is getting some more late help in his uphill battle to unseat the 36-year veteran from out-of-state conservative sources. A supplemental filing by the Walker campaign today shows a $2,000 donation from the National Right to Work Committee in Springfield, Virginia and a $2,000 donation from National Pro-Life Alliance in Annandale, Virginia.

Walker's largest contribution is a $15,000 donation from Associated Builders and Contractors of Indiana, which "is a professional construction trade association dedicated to the Merit Shop philosophy and to the free enterprise system." Another PAC related to ABC, Indiana Merit PAC, contributed another $15,000 to Walker.

Signs of more help for Walker coming from Sen. Brent Waltz (R-Greenwood) and Rep. Jeff Drozda (R-Westfield) is observed by Brian Howey. He reports that Walker is "relying on Mark Collins for his media, the same consultant that helped State Sens. Jeff Drozda and Brent Waltz engineer their primary upsets in 2002 and 2004 of Sens. Steve Johnson and Larry Borst."
