More than 120 agents and brokers are listed as supporters of Real Estate Professionals for a Better Wisconsin, which is protesting the Wisconsin Association of Realtors’ backing of Gov. Scott Walker and its donation of $150,0000 to his campaign, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

Walker has been at the center of the state’s highly controversial efforts to cut its budget, including the cutting of state jobs and limiting collective bargaining for state employees.

"We are petitioning the WRA to stop endorsing individual political candidates, focusing instead on educating the public about issues affecting our industry and where the candidates stand on them," reads a statement on the group’s site.
