The day after Wisconsin Democrats went public with their frustrations about the Democratic National Committee's lack of support for the effort to recall Gov. Scott Walker, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tweeted an oblique and partial response:
This is a close race with few undecided voters; it will be decided by turnout. Republicans will have all the money they need for that, just as they had money to pour into television advertising supporting Scott Walker while Democrats didn't even yet have a nominee to rally around. And if Walker wins, Republican governors and legislators around the country who have looked at the consequences he's facing for his anti-worker, anti-woman, anti-everyone-but-rich-people actions and hesitated to push similar legislation in their states will figure they have the go-ahead to do what they like. It won't just be Wisconsin that will face more Walker policies.
The stakes are too high for the DNC to stop at half-measures. Please contribute $4 to Tom Barrett to help recall Scott Walker.

12:52 PM PT: To add, while a Wisconsin Democrat was quoted yesterday complaining not only about the DNC but about the Democratic Governors Association, the DNC is the primary issue here—the DGA has committed significant funds to the recall election.
