Dem U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin knocks GOP rival Leah Vukmir in a new TV ad that accuses the state senator of doing the bidding of ALEC, which the spot calls a “shadowy organization.”
Baldwin’s first TV ad since Vukmir won the GOP primary last week opens by describing the American Legislative Exchange Council as a “a shadowy organization where lobbyists and big corporations get friendly legislators to introduce their pre-packaged bills.”
The narrator notes Vukmir, R-Brookfield, is on the group’s national board and says she’s taken tens of thousands of dollars from ALEC members and “pushed their agenda in Wisconsin.” The narrator says that includes “letting the phone companies jack up your rates. fighting against paid sick leave” and “easing up on nursing home safety.”
The narrator concludes the spot saying, “Leah Vukmir, she’s not for us.”
Baldwin’s campaign declined to say where the ad is running or how much it is spending on the buy.
