Here Come The TV Political Ad's
MADISON, Wis. (AP) Democrat Mary Burke's first television ad in the race against Republican Gov. Scott Walker touts her background with bicycle maker Trek while also attacking Walker's record on jobs. Burke's spokesman says the ad will air in multiple markets starting Friday. It comes eight months before the November election and signals that the race is heating up.
Walker's campaign has yet to release an ad but the Republican Governors Association launched a pair of spots last month. Burke is a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive and former state Commerce Department secretary.
Burke's ad goes after Walker's record on jobs, noting that statewide unemployment was never higher than 4.8 percent when Burke was Commerce secretary but it's never been lower than 6.2 percent under Walker. Walker's campaign spokesman had no immediate comment
