If there is one simple lesson to be taken from last night’s results in the attempted recall of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, it’s that it is especially hard for one side to win an election when they are being so massively outspent. In recent days, reports have surfaced that conservative millionaires are aiming to put some extra weight on their side of the scale this November by spending as much as $1.8 billion to defeat anyone who doesn’t agree with their extreme corporate-sponsored right wing agenda.
At Progress Michigan, we don’t have any corporate sponsors willing to write us unlimited checks. But we have people power – thousands of activists who know that when we come together, we win. Check out our new video below – it’s our response to Karl Rove’s latest $7 million campaign of lies and distortions, which he just launched in ten states, including Michigan. And when you’re done watching, make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, and most importantly, make sure that you and your friends join our team of thousands of activists across Michigan.
