Baldwin, Thompson release new TV ads

Senate rivals Tammy Baldwin and Tommy Thompson have new TV ads out this morning.

Baldwin's spot features former President Bill Clinton saying one big difference between the Madison Dem and Thompson is “she stood up to the special interests and he stood up for them.”

“If you put people first, it works better than trickle-down economics,” Clinton says as the ad switches between footage from a rally and shots of people, including one scene with Baldwin walking and talking with two women.

“Thanks to Tammy Baldwin, there are 3 million young people under the age of 26 who are now on their parents’ health insurance policy,” Clinton says.

“We will bring American back in a fair, balanced, progressive way. With Tammy Baldwin, you can count on it,” Clinton says as the spot closes with video of him and Baldwin holding hands and waving to the crowd at a rally.

Thompson has a new spot titled knocking Baldwin for raising the debt ceiling and other votes.

"Tammy Baldwin voted to raise the debt ceiling seven times, putting every Wisconsin child $50,000 in debt," the narrator says. "Baldwin voted to waste $800 billion on the stimulus, leaving one in eight Wisconsin workers looking for jobs."


The narrator then says Baldwin voted to cut Medicare for Wisconsin seniors and raise taxes on middle-class families to "pay for the waste."

"Tammy Baldwin hasn't been for Wisconsin, ever," the narrator says to close the spot.
