What State Is Scott Walker Running In?

Seriously? There was a time when the money you raised as a candidate spoke volumes about who you were and where your support came from. Well, actually that still is true - it just isn't important to anyone anymore.

Two-thirds of all the money Scott Walker has raised has come from out of state donations - keep in mind the total amount is unprecedented. 
It is not unusual to have a state candidate raising some funds from outside the state, but it is completely astounding of to have the majority of funds come from outside the state. Can anyone even remember that ever happening before?

In fact, 16 of the top 20 Walker contributors live in states other than Wisconsin.

Of course it make no difference to Walker supporters that their guy is raising millions of dollars from people who don't live in Wisconsin...but it should.
