pouring money into defending Scott Walker.
Ending Spending Action Fund, the Super PAC that wants to make the Rev. Jeremiah Wright an issue in the presidential campaign, is also backing Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall. Walker is the beneficiary of a six-figure media buy including a television ad and online campaign. The television ad touts Walker's courage, claiming he "did what he was elected to do" even though "it wasn't easy, or always popular" and that Wisconsin is on the right track economically. If you look at the numbers Walker prefers and that can't be compared to equivalent data from other states, anyway.
Between pro-Walker contributions and spending by the Ending Spending Super PAC, Sheldon Adelson, Amway founder Rich DeVos, Swiftboater Bob Perry, and the Koch brothers, the importance Republicans place on winning this recall election and keeping Scott Walker as governor of Wisconsin is crystal clear. Unfortunately, the Democratic National Committee isn't putting the same priority on supporting Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's effort to unseat Walker, and Democrats don't have as deep a bench of billionaire-driven Super PACs as Republicans.
