and if you know that the DNC gave money to the Wisconsin Democrats before Barrett won the primary and before he made his request for the $500K, why would you interpret Senator Erpenbach's statement that the DNC gave about $1.4 million as being equivalent to giving Barrett's campaign headquarters $1.4 after Barrett made the request for the $500K?
The issue is not whether the DNC gave money to the Wisconsin Democrats before the Democratic primary.
The issue is after Barrett won the Democratic primary and requested $500K, did the DNC provide it to him?
Quite frankly, I think that the issue is a simple one.
I did not hear any words from the clip from Senator Erpenbach saying that the DNC provided $1.4 million to Barrett after he won the primary and requested the $500K. Maybe you don't see Erpehbach's statement as being unequivocal. But I do. And I would like some assurance that the DNC, after receiving Barrett's request, sent $1.4 million or $500K to Barrett's campaign headquarters.
