DPW: WMC to spend just under $1M on ads in gov. race

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin this morning charged that Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce is set to begin running a TV ad campaign of just under $1 million at the end of the month.

In a conference call with reporters, DPW Chairman Mike Tate said the state business group will run the ads in the Wausau, Green Bay, La Crosse/Eau Claire, Madison and Milwaukee markets. He said the party doesn't know the content of the ads, but charged they would be an effort to "hide Scott Walker's job loss economy."

"Scott Walker and WMC have turned Wisconsin into a laughingstock nationally when in comes to jobs," Tate said.

Tate said that despite a large gap in spending on Walker's behalf already, "this race is still by all measures very close, very competitive."

"From the beginning, we've known that we were going to be outspent tremendously," Tate said.

A WMC spokesman did not immediately return a call from WisPolitics.
