Tremendous Grassroots Support Fuels Momentum for Barrett
By Phil Walzak, Barrett for Wisconsin Communications Director
Barrett for Wisconsin reported today that the campaign has raised more than $3.1 million this period, and has nearly $1.5 million cash-on-hand for the final week of the race for Wisconsin governor.
Despite Scott Walker’s enormous fundraising advantages, Tom Barrett and Walker are tied in the polls, and tied in cash-on-hand going into the final week of the campaign for Wisconsin governor.
Barrett's finance report shows an unprecedented gain in support from 26,826 new donors and 71% of Barrett's donors are from Wisconsin, as opposed to Scott Walker's donors, 75% of which are out-of-state.
It's clear Tom's support comes from tremendous energy from the grassroots, while Walker continues to raise unlimited money. And no Democratic candidate for governor in the history of this state has received this level of support.
