Democratic group infuses another $1 million into Wisconsin recall election
With less than two weeks to go until the recall election of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the Democratic Governors Association says it’s spending an additional $1 million to try and oust the Republican governor. The DGA announced Thursday morning that the additional $1 million will be used to support television commercials already running statewide in Wisconsin, as well as to beef up get out the vote efforts in the 12 days remaining until the June 5 vote.
The DGA says that the new expenditure brings to over $3 million the amount the organization has spent in Wisconsin, which they say is more than what they spent in the state in both the 2006 and 2010 gubernatorial contests, and “underscores our commitment to highlighting Scott Walker’s worst-in-the-nation record on job creation.”
