WASHINGTON (AP) – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is claiming to be thrifty in an email asking supporters to help him pay off more than $1 million in presidential campaign debt.
Walker said in the fundraising plea sent Sunday that “If there is one thing the American people learned about me during our presidential campaign, it is that I am thrifty.”
Walker spent more than $90,000 a day on his 70-day run for president.
Walker said in the email he’s thrifty because he likes to use coupons and shop sales racks.
The email says anyone who donates $45 will receive a Walker presidential campaign T-shirt. But due to a lack of resources, size and color requests won’t be honored.
Walker says the shirts can be framed or made into a pillow or bag.
