MADISON, Wisconsin — Gov. Scott Walker says he plans to pay off his presidential campaign debt by the end of the year.

Federal reports show Walker's campaign owed $1.2 million at the end of 2015. The governor told reporters following a speech to the Wisconsin Counties Association at a Madison hotel on Wednesday that he believes his campaign has paid down a third of its total debt so far and he hopes to pay off the rest by the end of 2016.

Walker entered the presidential race in mid-July, although he had spent months visiting early primary states before officially getting in. He dropped out in September after his campaign grew to about 90 staffers spread around the country and fundraising couldn't keep up with expenses.
