Romney Capable of a Scott Walker Win?

In defeating Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Walker dealt a significant knock to Wisconsin Democrats, progressives and the ranks of organized labor, who did their best to send the governor home before his term was finished. Dan Balz of the Washington Post claims Romney can hope to replicate Walker's model in two areas: money and conviction. He further elaborates:
“Obama began the campaign more than a year ago amid assumptions that he would easily raise more than his Republican opponent. But his advisers worry that they will be heavily outspent by GOP super PACs. Other than the economy, that potential funding disparity is the campaign’s biggest concern. Money may not decide the election, but Romney and the Republicans appear to have the edge there.”
