It's a Democrat-Thin War in Wisconsin
If the Badger State goes red, the Dems are dead.
That's the chantable little slogan you'll hear around Washington about how both sides are looking at the recall election of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, his lieutenant governor and four Republican state senators.
Trouble is, Dems on the national level aren't pouring enough money into the race between Walker and Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. And they've slipped as many as 7 points behind Walker in the polls.
DNC Chairwoman and Florida U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz responded to complaints about the failure to invest by sending out fundraising emails for Barrett to supporters of Obama’s 2008 campaign. Wasserman Schultz, who represents the 20th Congressional District, also is campaigning with Barrett this week, something Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called a “token visit.”
The DNC countered that Priebus' narrative isn't being read by Democrats on the ground.
Wanna bet it isn't?
