Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker still has nearly $900,000 in debt from his unsuccessful presidential run, as donations to help pay it down have reportedly dropped.

Walker's presidential committee has been gradually paying down its $1.2 million debt from the end of 2015, and now owes $898,676, according to campaign finance records.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Walker — who has said he'd pay off the debt from his dropped campaign by the end of this year — took in just under $71,000 in donations and other income in April, down from the approximate $128,000 the campaign collected in March.

Walker spent an average of $90,000 a day on his 71-day campaign for president, which ended last September. The largest outstanding debt he owes is $260,000 to FLS Connect for telemarketing and data, according to the records.

The Journal Sentinel reports Walker's presidential committee is separate from his governor's campaign — he's eyeing a third term in 2018 — which raised more than $500,000 in the second half of last year but spent most of it, leaving him with $20,000 in his state account.
