Cost to protect Walker & Kleefisch more than tripled since Doyle

MADISON - The cost to protect Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch last year was more than three times as much as it took to protect his Democratic predecessor in 2010.

Walker's administration released costs related to his security detail in response to an open records request by The Associated Press.

The information shows that security costs for Walker and Kleefisch were $2.3 million in 2014. The costs were up more than 47 percent from Walker's first year in office in 2011.
