Unlike the rest of the suburbs, Whitefish Bay residents contributed slightly more money to the Milwaukee mayor than they did to Republican governor in recall campaign.
Whether Gov. Scott Walker or Democrat Tom Barrett will win the gubernatorial recall election — or carry Whitefish Bay, for that matter — won't be known for sure until all the ballots are counted Tuesday night. What is known, however, is that when it comes to campaign contributions, the Milwaukee mayor has narrowly outraised the Republican incumbent in Whitefish Bay. In fact, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay are the only two suburbs in the Patch coverage area where that's happened. A Patch analysis of campaign finance reports filed last week with the state Government Accountability Board shows that Barrett has raised $26,626 from Whitefish Bay residents since March.

Scott Walker has raised $13 million in the most recent three-month reporting period in his effort to retain his seat in Wisconsin's historic recall election, new campaign finance reports showed.

However, Republican incumbent has nearly twice as much money on hand heading into the final week of 8th Senate District recall campaign.
The campaign to recall Republican state Sen. Alberta Darling took an unexpected turn as challenger Sandy Pasch reported raising far more in July than her rival. Pasch, a Democrat from Whitefish Bay, still has far less money on hand, however, and overall has taken in less cash this year. Reports filed Monday night with the state Government Accountability Board show that Pasch raised $190,903 in July, compared to Darling's $165,155. To date, Darling has raised $1,123,574 to Pasch's $622,680, according to the reports. Pasch reports having $216,439 on hand compared to Darling's $401,382 as the campaign enters its final week. Despite trailing in overall money raised during the year, Pasch's campaign was upbeat about the latest numbers. "This is…
