NRCC ad hits Nelson over pay raise, dubs him "Tax Man Tom Nelson"

The National Republican Congressional Committee is out with a new ad targeting 8th CD Democrat Tom Nelson over accepting a pay raise while in office and dubbing him "Tax Man Tom Nelson."

This is the final ad the NRCC booked in the district. The group pulled its buys that had been planned for the weeks of Oct. 25 and Nov. 1.

The ad shows an image of Nelson wearing a green cape above a wall of cash while the narrator says, "Life is good for Tax Man Tom Nelson."

The narrator says Nelson raised taxes and took "taxpayer funded pay raises for himself, even during the financial crisis" while related text appears on the screen.

The ad cuts to an image of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi standing beside an armored truck with "Wisconsin taxpayers" written on the side as money flows from the truck into a wheelbarrow Nelson is holding. The text "higher taxes on us" then appears on the screen.

The narrator says Nelson "put his interests ahead of ours.

"That’s why Nancy Pelosi is spending big for Taxman Tom, because she knows he’ll support her tax and spend agenda."

The ad shows Nelson in front of Washington, D.C., landmarks still wearing the green cape and holding the wheelbarrow full of cash, while the narrator says, "We can’t afford Tom Nelson in Washington."

The narrator then says "whenever Taxman Tom Nelson comes around, Wisconsin pays the price" while the image shifts to Nelson in front of Lambeau Field, cash raining down as he flies away.
