Fitzgerald runs first radio ad; asks supporters to help get ad on the air

Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald has released his first advertisement of the campaign, which highlights his ties to Gov. Scott Walker and move to push through a conservative agenda in the Legislature.

The 60-second radio spot, entitled "Proven," begins with Fitzgerald saying that he stood firm in the face of "violent protests" last year and lists achievements such as balancing the budget without tax increases as well as enacting concealed carry, the castle doctrine and voter ID legislation.

"I may not be independently wealthy, but with me you know what you're going to get," Fitzgerald says. "A battle-tested conservative who'll take the fight to Washington."

He then says he'll enact Paul Ryan's entitlement reforms in the Senate and that Wisconsin needs the same "political courage" they've shown in this state.

"This is Jeff Fitzgerald and I approved this message because Washington needs more Wisconsin," Fitzgerald ends.


In an e-mail to supporters early Friday, Fitzgerald says the ad will start running on Monday and encouraged them to make small donations to get the ad on the air.
