Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and his allies are outspending Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett by 3-1 on TV ads. Barrett is Walker's Democratic challenger in the state recall election early next month.
National Journal reports:
Walker's campaign, which has raised a record $25 million+ for the recall campaign, spent over $7 million for TV buys from March 20 through Election Day, according to a source tracking ad buys in the state. In anticipation of the recall, the governor has been on the air since last December, with spots touting his record, including his controversial budget repair bill curbing collective bargaining for public employees. In total, Walker's campaign has spent over $12 million on recall election campaign ads.
