A number of outside groups affiliated with Democrats are spending $1 million in Wisconsin in support of long shot Democratic candidates.
But what’s most interesting from this article is the Republican Party response:
Alec Zimmerman, a spokesman for the state Republican Party, said the effort shows Democrats are committed to spending as much as they can to try to get control of state government.
“This just confirms what Republicans have been saying all along — outside money from liberal special interests is pouring into Wisconsin to undo Republican reforms and take Wisconsin backward,” he said by email.
Uhmmm….and there is absolutely no outside money in Wisconsin supporting GOP candidates? I bet there is [sarcasm]!
Anyway, if this is such a concern about outside money pouring into the state, I will be waiting for Republican legislation in the next session to put a lid on it. I suppose I shouldn’t hold my breath.
