DNC Chair: We’re ‘Fully Engaged’ In Wisconsin Recall Race

Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said Sunday that the DNC is putting considerable resources in the race to help Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett defeat Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin.

We have “put our considerable grassroots resources behind him — all of the Obama For America and state party resources,” she told CNN’s State of the Union. “Our grassroots network is fully engaged.”

As a result, she said, Barrett has a “real opportunity to win.”

The DNC has faced criticism from Wisconsin Democrats for not investing enough in the race, which progressives and conservatives believe could have important national implications.
