Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's re-election war chest grew to a sizeable $3.5 million in campaign donations in just six months, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"Gov. Walker has built a very large, loyal following that I'm sure is the envy of elected officials everywhere," Republican strategist Mark Graul told the newspaper.

After expenses, The Badger State’s top Republican lawmaker had $2.2 million in the bank as of June 30, his campaign finance report revealed.

The Journal Sentinel says no Democrats have thrown their hats in the ring as yet to challenge Walker in 2014.

But Winnebago County Executive Mark Harris and former state Commerce Secretary Mary Burke have been mentioned as potential candidates, according to the newspaper.
