18. The funding advantage exists because 1) Walker has high up cronies and 2)...

...because the Democratic Party was focused on recalling Walker and selecting a primary candidate.

What you're saying is that basically they should've been fund raising while simultaneously recalling Walker. This is a really bad strategy. Had Walker not been recalled I'm sure the complaints would be "the DNC and the WI Democrats should've spent more effort recalling Walker rather than fund raising."

Tom Barrett didn't get selected until May 8th. Just over a week after the walker recall signatures were certified (March 29th). 4 weeks to raise funds without any super high profile cronies to pay for Super PAC's.

Yeah, really, I think they're doing a great job with the hand they've been dealt and with how much work they've had to do.
