The League of Conservation Voters has announced a $1 million ad buy with two new ads that support Tammy Baldwin.
The first 30-second TV ad, titled "Cash," starts with a photo of Thompson next to the D.C. Capitol building, while a narrator says that Thompson "cashed in" when he went to Washington by "peddling influence for special interests."
"But now Tommy wants to go back as a senator, promising to protect their tax breaks, paid for by the middle class," the narrator says.
The ad then shifts to a positive depiction of Baldwin, saying she'll fight "special interest corruption" and fight for the middle class. The ad ends with the tagline "Tammy Baldwin: Always for us."
The second 30-second TV ad, titled "Allies," starts by highlighting "thousands of new energy jobs" created President Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin. The narrator also says that Baldwin and Obama doubled the mileage standards for cars and doubled the production of clean energy.
"Now, President Obama needs an ally in the Senate," the narrator says. "And we need Tammy Baldwin. She'll end tax breaks for big oil, fight to hold polluters accountable and stop big corporations from sending jobs overseas."
The ad ends with the line,"Vote for Tammy and let's move Wisconsin forward."
"Cash" is running in the Milwaukee media market while "Allies" is running in the Madison media market.
