Two of Gov. Scott Walker's top financial contributors were named Tuesday by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to the leadership team of a key fundraising committee to support Donald Trump.
Diane Hendricks, a Beloit billionaire who is co-founder and chairman of ABC Supply, was picked as one of the vice chairs of Trump Victory committee. The committee will raise money for the RNC, the Trump campaign and 11 state party committees.
Elizabeth (Liz) Uihlein, president of Pleasant Prairie-based Uline Corp., was also named to the committee.
Last year, Hendricks gave $5 million to Unintimidated PAC, a super pac that was formed to support Walker's failed presidential bid, records show. She also gave $500,000 to Walker in his 2012 recall campaign, according to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign.
Uihlein and her husband Richard Uihlein, who live in Lake Forest, Ill., gave Walker's Unintimidated PAC $3 million, records show.
