MillerCoors Loves Scott Walker
He gets $72,000 from its employees and $32,000 from Mills Fleet Farm.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker recently celebrated expansion plans with a couple of companies whose employees contributed more than $100,000 to his campaign.
Last Friday, Walker was in Milwaukee where MillerCoors broke ground to expand its 10th Street Brewery.
MillerCoors employees contributed about $72,000 between January 2010 and December 2016 to Walker’s three campaigns for governor. Topping the list of MillerCoors executives who contributed to Walker were:
Michael Jones, of Delafield, a former Miller public relations executive, $8,500.
Walker also showed up in Chippewa Falls for the groundbreaking of a Mills Fleet Farm distribution center. Walker received $32,675 between January 2010 and December 2016, mostly from the Mills family, who sold the hardware store chain last year. The contributors were:
Henry Mills, of Brainerd, Minn., $3,000;
Brian Mathes, of Hilbert, an analyst, $125.
