MADISON - Questions have been abounding on how much the unions are supporting Democrats during the battle over Governor Scott Walker's budget repair bill.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars are pouring in online from around America for Wisconsin's Senate Democrats as all 14 of them remain outside the state, in Illinois.

Republicans are accusing Democrats of using this issue to drum up money and fire up their base.

"I think those 14 senators are using those campaign donations to continue this charade," said Burlington Republican State Assemblyman Robin Vos.
