Baldwin’s first TV ads of her re-election bid to air Tuesday

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s first TV ads of her re-election bid tout the Madison Dem’s push for “Buy America” policies and to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

The TV and digital ad campaign, which will run in Green Bay and Milwaukee, includes two spots.

The first ad, which features Neenah Foundry worker Roddy Rice, highlights Baldwin’s push for “Buy America” legislation to ban the use of foreign-made materials in certain infrastructure projects.  

“My Buy America legislation requires government infrastructure projects to use 100 percent American iron and steel because it’s time America buys what Wisconsin makes,” Baldwin says in the ad.

The second ad features a series of news clips about Baldwin’s bill with U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., aimed at lowering the costs of prescription drugs through what’s been dubbed the “Fair Drug Pricing Act,” which is aimed at requiring manufacturers to share information about a planned price increase.

It ends with Baldwin saying she’s “fighting against drug companies that jack up their prices.”

A Baldwin campaign spokesman declined to say how much the campaign is spending on the ad buy.
