Neumann to spend a million of own money for governor's race

JANESVILLE - Former Wisconsin congressman Mark Neumann says he's putting a million dollars of his own money into his campaign for governor.

Neumann is running for the Republican nomination for the state's highest elective office against Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker. He says his personal investment will make sure his campaign has enough funding to win.

Neumann served Wisconsin in Congress from 1994 to 1998. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is running for Wisconsin Governor as a Democrat. Incumbent Jim Doyle has announced he's not running for reelection after serving two terms.
