As Wisconsin voters head to the polls in a recall election that will decide the fate of Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday, Democrats and Republicans disagree over what — if anything — the results will mean for the presidential election in November.

Last week, polls showed a widening lead for Walker , while President Obamawas conspicuously absent from challenger Democrat Tom Barrett’s campaign appearances.

On CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report,” Julian Epstein, who served as the chief minority counsel to the House Judiciary Committee and as the majority staff director of the House Government Operations Committee, and Matt Lewis, a senior contributor to the Daily Caller, disagreed on what message the election would have.
