Walker already up with TV ad touting new job numbers

Gov. Scott Walker is already up with a TV ad touting new job figures his administration released this morning showing Wisconsin gained jobs during his first year in office.

In the spot, Walker says he has some bad news for Tom Barrett, “but good news for Wisconsin.”

Walker says “the government” just released new job numbers that show Wisconsin gained more than 20,000 jobs in his first term. Walker’s administration this morning put out figures it gathered from state employers that are being sent to the federal government for review.

Walker says once jobs created this year are added it, it’s more than 30,000 new jobs since he took office.

“Mayor Barrett, he said this election is about jobs. I couldn’t agree more,” Walker says. “Our reforms are working, and we’re moving Wisconsin forward.”

Dems planned a conference call this afternoon to question the timing of the ad. Walker said the Department of Workforce Development, which released the figures, had not shared them with him ahead of their release. Dems are questioning how the guv got a TV ad up by the noon news shows if that's true.
