Dems fear union cash drain in Wisconsin
By Alexander Bolton - 01/24/12 05:00 AM ET
Organized labor’s plans to spend heavily to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has sparked angst on the left that the effort will come at the expense of Democrats in other states.
The funding disparity between groups allied with either Republicans or Democrats is one of the biggest concerns for New York Sen. Charles Schumer, the Senate Democrats’ chief political strategist.
Unions have made ousting Walker a top priority and are poised to spend heavily in Wisconsin. But Democratic strategists and some senior political experts within the labor movement believe the initiative should have been launched before the November presidential election.
Labor officials are also looking at investing resources in Indiana, a red-leaning state, to battle controversial right-to-work legislation backed by Gov. Mitch Daniels (R).

1. I think
They are looking at it from the wrong angle, greed on their parts.... Not taking into count the effect that recalling Walker will have on the rest of the elections going on later this year... big moral boost for dems.
