  •  The reason for the "half" claim (0+ / 0-)

    is that some people are only looking at official campaign coffers and ignoring PAC money.  The more correct way to get an accurate picture is to count the cost of any ad which is obviously pro-Walker as "Walker spending" and any ad which is obviously pro-Barret as "Barrett spending" regardless of what name is on the cover of the organization that payed for it.  Doing THAT you get a figure more like 10 to 1.  (For a while it was 20 to 1 but that was during the primary before Barret was officially the Democrats' candidate.)
