Greater Wisconsin ad criticizes Walker on job numbers

A new ad from the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund says Gov. Scott Walker is trying to create numbers because he can't explain recent job figures showing a loss of jobs over the last year.

The 30-second television ad, entitled "Vote", starts by claiming Wisconsin is "dead last" in the nation when it comes to job creation, while showing a Journal Sentinel headline with the claim. It then switches to two citizens making the same claim, before another headline is paired with a narrator saying that the state is still losing jobs.

"Those are the facts confirmed by independent sources," the narrator says, as the ad displays the logos of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Labor Department and the Department of Workforce Development. "Take a look: Walker can't defend his failed record, so he's decided to produce his own job numbers."

The ad then says Walker cut public education to fund corporate tax breaks. The ad shifts to one "man on the street"  who says Walker's "theory just isn't working" and another asks "Where are the jobs?"

"We're still dead last," the narrator says. "Now, we have to vote to change that."
