Pro-Walker union money will now go to attack Dunleavy

Whatever became of that pro-Walker union money once the governor dropped out of the race? It's helping to fuel the attacks on Republican candidate Mike Dunleavy.

The independent expenditure group Unite for Walker which received donations from the AFL-CIO, Teamsters and other unions has given $255,000 to a group that is funding anti-Dunleavy ads. The Unite For Walker group's total spending from Oct. 22, days after Walker's announcement, to Oct. 26 aimed at opposing a Dunleavy election.

Meantime, the Begich campaign filed its seven-day report showing that the Democratic nominee raised $334,000 between Oct. 6 and Oct. 27. The money comes from about 1,500 individual donors, according to the campaign.

Dunleavy's campaign finance report is due by midnight. The campaign went into the final stretch of the election with about $171,000 cash on hand.
