The question is, how will those Dems spend those millions? Just “getting out the vote”?
If so, they’re risking every penny, and Wisconsin’s future.
Committee supporting Democrats in recalls raises $4 million in six weeks

A political action committee formed by a coalition of unions active in state recall races says it has raised more than $4 million in the past six weeks, and has $2 million on hand to help Democrats.
Its goal is to flip the state Senate to Democratic control.
In a filing prepared for the state Government Accountability Board, We Are Wisconsin listed more than $3 million in donations from the national AFL-CIO’s Committee on Political Education. The group also received contributions in the hundreds of thousands of dollars – both cash and in-kind – from units of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state’s biggest teachers union; and the United Food and Commercial Workers.
