Of the $10.1 million Evers raised during the first half of the year, about $4.3 million came from cash and in-kind donations from the Wisconsin Democratic Party, the Campaign for Democracy said. That helped Evers report the most fundraising during that period for any sitting governor, surpassing the previous record set by the then-governor.
Scott Walker by about $5.5 million in 2018. Evers beat Walker, a Republican, in 2018 and is running for a second term. Spielberg, who directed such blockbusters as “ET,” “Jurassic Park” and “Jaws,” has long supported Democratic candidates across the country. Earlier this year, he and Capshaw also donated $10,000 each to the campaign of Democratic Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford.
