Scott Walker building momentum

Last Friday, a Rasmussen poll showed Scott Walker leading Tom Barrett by 10 points in the race for governor. It is very, very early. Even so, this is a good sign.

Then campaign donations for Walker kept coming, and coming, and coming, and coming. They were coming so fast that Walker’s campaign said the state’s Government Accountability Board (GAB) and its computers system couldn’t handle the input of donations.

What do you think the spin of the state government agency was that it was slow in handling the onslaught of Walker donations?

We didn’t do anything wrong. We were able to function. We got everything into our system.

Yeh, sure. But after how long?

The past couple of years have seen a number of stories about problems with state computers and software. I don’t doubt for a minute the GAB’s equipment couldn’t effectively adapt to the Walker donations this past weekend.

In typical bureaucrat-ese, the GAB cries, “Not true. We did everything right!”

OK, whatever. The fact is Scott Walker’s campaign is growing and picking up steam.

And the left is very, very worried. eStore
