Gov. Walker discouraging campaign donations related to Kenosha casino, but won't refuse it

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Governor Scott Walker says he does not want any of the parties interested in the Kenosha casino project to give him campaign money. 

However, he stopped short today of saying he would refuse such donations. 

The Republican Walker has the final decision over the Menominee tribe's proposed Hard Rock casino-and-resort in Kenosha. 

Supporters say it will create thousands of jobs and bring in more visitors from Illinois -- while opponents say it will take both jobs and revenue away from other Indian casinos in southern Wisconsin. 

Today, Walker asked the administration department to do an in-depth review of the jobs issue.  He told reporters in Milwaukee the best thing the tribes can do with their money is to supply information to help him make an informed decision. 

Walker said TV ads that urge him to decide one-way-or-the-other would not be helpful.
