Thompson goes after Hovde, Club for Growth knocks them both

Tommy Thompson has a new TV ad that goes after Eric Hovde, while the Club for Growth has a new spot out that knocks both of them.

The Thompson TV ad is similar to a radio spot he released last week that questions Hovde's conservative credentials because the hedge fund manager and community banker gave a donation to former Gov. Jim Doyle.

The 30-second TV ad notes that Hovde gave $500 to Doyle's campaign "against Scott Walker" in 2005.

It plays audio of Hovde saying he was probably "strong armed" by Doyle and that he "capitulated."

"Hovde admits he capitulated to liberal Jim Doyle to protect his real estate deals," a narrator says. "Tommy Thompson stood up to liberals like Jim Doyle his whole career. Hovde capitulated. That's a risk we can't afford."

The national Club for Growth spot asks, “Who will bring real conservative change to Washington?”

The spot features a cube with pictures on all sides that rotates as the narrator says Thompson “did some good things ago.” One side of the cube shows an old black-and-white picture of Thompson.

“But he pushed for nine different tax hikes and said we can’t repeal Obamacare,” the narrator says.

The spot then turns to Hovde, who the narrator says supported a “Wall Street bailout and Obama’s high-speed rail stimulus spending.”

“That won’t change Washington,” the narrator says.

The spot concludes by praising Mark Neumann as Wisconsin’s “most conservative congressman in decades. Neumann’s the choice for conservative change.”
