EXCLUSIVE: Wisconsin Dems furious with DNC for refusing to invest big money in Walker recall - The Plum Line - The Washington Post

Quote:
Top Wisconsin Democrats are furious with the national party — and the Democratic National Committee in particular — for refusing their request for a major investment in the battle to recall Scott Walker, I’m told.

“Scott Walker has made this a national election,” the Wisconsin Dem tells me. “If he wins, he will turn his victory into a national referendum on his ideas about the middle class.
Oh.....yes. And also about the unions.

Oh my.

One reason the DNC is not ponying up is because OBAMA has said he will NOT be giving the DNC money this election cycle, which is unprecedented.

Only one conclusion - the DNC does not have the funds to contribute a measly $500K to WI...they're going to need it for House and Senate races since they are being shorted by obama, who needs all his cash for his own re-election.

The WI dems/Left/unions were warned last year that an expensive effort for the recall could in fact undermine the Nov election. They went ahead anyway.

This is GREAT news.

A poll out this morning has Walker up by.......9.

I think people are starting to ask themselves: Why should a Public Union be able to own its own health insurance provider that gets a monopoly from collective bargaining so it can overcharge the tax payers at the expense of the school district.

Maybe they saw some of the latest polling, including one today that has Walker up by 9 points against Barrett (52-43).

That...and the cash is just not there. Obama is going to need every penny he collects to beat back the 100s of millions going against him. The DNC will need every penny they get to hold the Senate.

WI dems/unions/Left were warned.

Here's a little update from Ms. Cutter.

National Democrats Back-off from Wisconsin Recall | Washington Free Beacon

Quote:
The Obama campaign and DNC are one in the same. Are you going to pony up money to the recall election in Wisconsin?

CUTTER: I don’t know the answer to that question, on the money.
That would likely be a ....NO.

The Left/dems/unions have spent millions of dollars since 2011 in an effort to stop Walker and his successful agenda.....they failed miserably so far, have wasted millions of dollars and can't say as I blame the DNC/OFA for not throwing bad money after horrible money.

Oh, the Kosacks over at Dkos have a poll out today.....Barrett got ZERO bounce..Walker still by five.

And the juiciest tidbit is they buried the obama v Mitt match up....obama by 1....in WI..
