  •  She won't have as much as Walker. (9+ / 0-)

    But will she have enough? Hard to say.

    She is working a lot harder than Tom Barrett did in 2010.

    •  2010 in general (0+ / 0-)

      Was the Tea Party way underestimated because you had Poe's Law people looking silly with their tricorns and Tennessee battle flags and misspelled signs?

      Then again, was Reagan sorely underestimated in '80 because his '76 primarying of Ford was just so train-wreck bad?

    •  WI is the Koch's money laundry test site (4+ / 0-)

      So it's fair to say that the money has and will pour in, not that it might pour in.

      Regardless, I see a few encouraging signs that seem to show that the money gap isn't as effective as it once was in WI. If so, the Koch's are just going to widen the gap.

      I agree that it is hard to say if she'll have enough money. Money continues to be the biggest problem.

        Goddamned shame, isn't it?  We lost our democracy.

          Right now, money is the biggest influence and a huge problem in campaign finance for sure. Yeah, it's a damn shame. This native-born cheesehead gets teary-eyed from time to time whenever some WI fascist teabagger legislator destroys something really good and important and that took decades of effort to create.

          It's our democracy that has and will stop this shit again. The word is getting out. The damage is becoming visible, real, and personal. The pushback is growing stronger. It's becoming a national issue. The people will prevail.

          I just wish it would happen sooner rather than later.
