Wisconsin: Down to the Wire

05/25/2012

Michael Podhorzer

With a tenure that includes job losses in the thousands—pitting Wisconsin as dead last in the country for job creation—as well as unpopular budget cuts that will cause 17,000 people to lose heath care coverage and ongoing investigations into the moral and ethical integrity of his closest staff and allies, even Gov. Scott Walker knows he can’t credibly tout his record to voters.

Out of the nearly $29 million that Walker and right-wing Super PACs have spent on TV ads since March, some $19 million was spent on anti-Tom Barrett attack ads. In other words, two-thirds of all conservative ad spending is going to ads that tear down Barrett because there’s nothing to flaunt when it comes to Walker’s "divide and conquer” style of leadership. 

Tom Barrett and the other candidates running to replace four Republican state senators who passed laws that favor the 1% may not have a multimillion-dollar war chest, but they do have the backing of the grassroots movement that took on the enormous effort to recall Walker.

Description: Description: 6720725307_5efb4f16dfMore than 30,000 Wisconsin volunteers collected more than 1 million signatures to recall Scott Walker. Those signatures are just shy of the total votes received by Walker in his 2010 election (Walker received 1.12 million votes). Demonstrations at the state Capitol have hosted crowds of up to 100,000 people acting to reclaim their state.

Tens of thousands of volunteers have donated countless hours phone banking, going door to door, organizing rallies and mobilizing their communities to get involved in the political process. Walker may out-raise and out-spend, but the polling proves that even in a post-Citizens United world, you can’t simply buy peoples’ hearts and minds.

Now, more than ever, working people must engage in the political process and take ownership of the direction they want their government to go in. Real people doing real work to elect candidates who truly represent their values face a battle versus unpopular candidates who’ve tilted the playing field, thanks to mega-donations from Super PACs, the Koch Brothers and the wealthiest 1 percent.

The ability of working people on the ground to motivate their friends, families and neighbors will ultimately decide who wins at the ballot.
