Daschle says DGA has spent $1 million in Wisconsin

The head of the Dem Governors Association said the group has spent $1 million in Wisconsin this year and will continue supporting the Greater Wisconsin Committee to raise important issues in the guv's race.

The GWC previously reported a $300,000 donation from the DGA in March. The GWC, which has run a steady stream of TV ads attacking GOP guv hopefuls Scott Walker and Mark Neumann, also received $1 million from Dem Gov. Jim Doyle.

"What we consider to be our most valuable way of playing a role in this race is helping support an organization like the Greater Wisconsin Committee, which we think is raising some important issues," said DGA executive director Nathan Daschle.

Daschle told Wisconsin reporters this morning that the state was one of the DGA's top 10 races this fall and praised Tom Barrett as "the person that we wanted in this race." He said the primary fight between Neumann and Walker is indicative of the "GOP civil war" seen around the country, calling Neumann the kind of candidate that the Tea Party likes, while Walker is the kind of candidate those activists hate because he'll say or do anything to win election.

"The far-right voters see Scott Walker, and they see a phony," Daschle said.

He said the DGA plans to use "ruthless targeting" this fall to decide which races to prioritize. There are 37 gubernatorial contests on the fall ballot, 24 of which are open seats.

"It is without a question one of our top 10 states," Daschle said of Wisconsin.
