Spence receives support from Wis. Gov. Walker

Oct 17, 2012

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is coming to Missouri to raise money to support Republican gubernatorial challenger Dave Spence.

Spence's campaign said Walker will hold a luncheon fundraiser Monday in the Kansas City area for Spence. He'll then attend a rally in Jefferson City before ending the day with another fundraiser in St. Louis County.

Spence is running against Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon in the Nov. 6 election.

Walker is the third Republican governor to come to Spence's aid. Last month, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie held a fundraiser and rally for Spence in Springfield. In August, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell headlined a suburban St. Louis fundraiser for Spence. McDonnell is chairman of the Republican Governors Association and Christie is vice chairman.
