According to a LA Slimes article today, the vitriolic DNC chair is trying to downplay the effect the Democrat/union led recall against Republican Governor Scott Walker will have on the Presidential election in November.
Recent polls have pointed toward a victory for Republican Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin’s June 5 recall election. But here’s the clearest evidence to date that national Democratic party officials believe their side is losing: Democratic officials are playing down the potential impact.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) insisted in a television interview that a loss for the Democratic candidate in the recall, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, wouldn't have any implications for other races, such as the presidential election.
“I think, honestly, there aren’t going to be any repercussions,” Wasserman Schultz said on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” program. “It’s an election that’s based in Wisconsin.”
But this morning, she was on CNN and said the recall was a "test run" for November (h/t Gateway Pundit).
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Sunday classified Democratic efforts in the Wisconsin recall election as a “test run” for the presidential race.
“It’s given the Obama for America operation an opportunity to do the dry run we need of our massive, significant dynamic grassroots presidential campaign,” the Florida representative said of the battleground state on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Unless it's a test run for seeing how many voters they can get out of the cemetary to vote Democrat.
Actually, the Wisconsin recall is a referendum on November. Do residents want to keep the path forward to an improved economy under Gov. Walker, or go back to deficits and high unemployment under Democrats, as Obama has done to America for the last three years.
