    Recall challengers' combined campaign cash pales to Walker's total

    Where did the money come from is the question.

    doesn't matter. A fair portion of Walkers money came from out of state, which is perfectly legal, right up until the date for the recall election is officially set, and then he could no longer accept outside money. Also, all candidates are taking advantage of outside groups, as shown in the linked piece. Trouble for Walker opponents is, fewer groups are supporting his opponents.

    I think it matters a great deal.

    Why would someone from Pennsylvania spend money on a Wisconsin campaign?

    Right or left, where the money comes from matters.


    ETA: Keep us updated on your Tardis build. cant wait to see the finished product. very cool.

    I believe I heard on the Jerry Bader Show that was a national record for ANY state political office in history.

    I suppose all the out of state money that poured into the state to get him recalled mattered too?
