The family of roofing supply billionaire Diane Hendricks contributed $80,000 to Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign during the last half of 2017, a Wisconsin Democracy Campaign preliminary review found.

Hendricks, who owns ABC Supply in Beloit, is Walker’s top individual contributor at about $546,000 and a loyal donor to Republican state and federal candidates and committees. Coupled with the $20,000 Hendricks herself contributed to Walker in the first six months of 2017, the family’s contributions to the governor last year totaled at least $100,000. The Hendricks family contributions in the last half of 2017 came from her children:

  • Brent Fox, of Janesville, chief executive officer of Hendricks Holding Co., $20,000;
  • Kim Hendricks, of Janesville, a former ABC Supply vice president, $20,000;
  • Konya Schuh, of Janesville, a Century 21 real estate agent, $20,000;
  • Kathleen Hendricks, of Janesville, an ABC Supply executive director, $10,000;
  • Kevin Hendricks, of Janesville, owner of Backyard Properties, $10,000.

In addition to the three Hendricks family members who gave Walker the maximum $20,000 contribution, six other Wisconsin donors gave Walker $20,000 each during the last six months of 2017. They were:

    A great Wisconsin family-run business, supporting a great, pro-business Governor! Warms my heart on this cold Jan. day and makes me glad for the future of the state.

    I expect we’ll see that the Hendricks’ are getting some kind of favor from our pay-to-play governor similar to the Uihleins. Anyone with enough money can buy favors from our corrupt governor. Diane Hendricks has been buying Walker favors for her business and personal interests since the scum bag took office.

    Career Politician Scott Walker is as greasy as they come folks. He and all other corrupt, scheming, scamming Trump enabling republicans in Wisconsin are in for a very rude awakening in the November 2018 mid-term elections. Walker just canceled the other special elections because Jarchow got so hammered in District 10. Just kick back, pop some corn and watch the cleansing begin. This is gonna be sweet….

    Dump Walker! Dump all republicans!
    Legalize cannabis instead!

  4. Terry says:

    @WashCoRepub, Career Politician Scott Walker is not “pro-business.” He is “pro-giant corporation” and “pro-ultra wealthy donors” but not “pro-business.”

    It is a sad day when the mega rich buying our government off “warms” any American’s heart.

    “So this is how Democracy dies? To thunderous applause…”

    The Liberals are so purist. I am sure Tammy Baldwin is out there in Hollywood raking in money from the Kevin Spacey’s of the world. Hey, Terry ever here of the first amendment. Hendricks has every right to support Scott Walker. As much as the SEIU or UAW can mug their workers out of union dues to support the socialist candidate. Terry remember to sends the workers the memo of who they must support.

  6. Terry says:

    @Troll, The word is spelled “hear” not “here” as you wrote. Ahem. How’s that for puritanism? “Purist” aka off subject, ad hominem, more of the same…Don’t the Koch’s have anything better than this for their 500 Million annually? Next!

  7. Troll says:

    Terry go put signs in the ground. Knock on doors. Go to a call center. Hillary had twice as much money then Trump. She had no ground game. If this is the Democrats year. 💰 Won’t matter.

  8. will says:

    Do you all remember Career politican Walker in his first month in office taking the fake Kock bro’s phone call and would do anything they wanted. Didn’t the Koch bro’s open an office on the capital square in hopes of running our state government. If you give big cash to the GOP in Wisconsin you can have our state labor and resources for pennies. Our fresh water is under attack.

  9. Terry says:

    @Troll, go right ahead. What the hell does Hillary have to do with this? You can’t blame Doyle, Obama, Hillary and the poor forever republicans! I didn’t vote for her anyways! How about this. I’ll do what I want Troll. Newsflash, you are not the boss. Ever hear of freedom of speech? Look into it! I am not going anywhere and I’ll say what I want.
    Btw, the word is spelled “than” not “then” as you have written. Showing off your ignorance for the whole world to see is not becoming of you Troll!
    Dump Walker 2018!
    Dump all republicans 2018!
