Oh baloney...much of this was shere motivation on the part of the individual organizations and allied organization - the DNC itself could have pumped a lot more money in to assist but read the polls and decided not to risk that much money on something unlikely to be a victory with general elections coming up. Meanwhile GOP orgs saw victory was at hand and got in there to solidify it. Democrat decisions not to pump more resources in was there decision - but they spin to try to blame it on the Republicans because they did.
Let’s not forget sight of the fact that the WI democrats took control of the state senate, 17-16.
Now, I think 16 out of 33 state senate seats are up for re-election this Novemebr.
Walker could be hobbled for the rest of his term if the dems block everything in the state senate.
It means Wisconsonites have to actually ramp up the fight rather than wind down and relax.
I’ve no doubt that, if all the political expenditures in Wisconsin since the last general election were added up — the protests, the recall referenda, the Supreme Court election and, finally, the recall election itself — the Democrats and union thugs far outspent the Republicans.
The libs outspent Walker 5 to one......
