U.S. Chamber releases new TV ad hitting Feingold, praising Johnson

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is going up with a new TV ad tomorrow that praises U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and says there is a “clear choice on leadership” in Wisconsin between the Oshkosh Republican and Dem Russ Feingold.

It also incorrectly says Feingold spent 28 years in Washington, D.C., rather than the 18 he served in the U.S. Senate before losing to Johnson in 2010.

The spot features Johnson and Feingold’s heads imposed on cartoon bodies. It shows Johnson flipping a switch on a conveyor belt as the narrator says for the Republican, it’s about “giving back,” creating jobs, growing the economy and giving people new opportunities. Johnson high fives a worker on the conveyor belt as it fills a truck with boxes. 

It then shows Feingold stopping the truck as it tries to pull away and pushing a wheelbarrow to the back of the vehicle. As the narrator says it’s all about growing ineffective government, raising taxes, increasing spending and expanding Obamacare, Feingold’s wheelbarrow fills with money bags from the truck and then from workers next to the conveyor line. 

“Russ Feingold’s 28 years in Washington failed Wisconsin. Why would we ever go back to that?,” the narrator says to close the spot.

A spokeswoman did not immediately return an email inquiring about the mistake on Feingold's service in Washington, D.C.

The chamber said the ad is part of an eight-figure buy that includes Ohio, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. The campaigns will run through July.
