Conservative vets group announces TV ad hitting Baldwin for failing to ‘show up’

The conservative Concerned Veterans for America today announced a nearly $1 million buy on TV and digital knocking U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin for failing to “show up” at “important meetings.”

The spot, which the group said will air in several Wisconsin markets, opens with an empty chair and the U.S. Capitol in the background. The narrator says leaders are counted on, particularly when “lives are at stake.”

“But Tammy Baldwin missed over 70 percent of important meetings,” saying her chair sat empty 100 times on a committee “responsible for investigating fraud, incompetence, corruption, problems like the Tomah VA scandal.”

“Could Baldwin have uncovered abuses sooner?” the narrator says to close the spot. “We’ll never know because Tammy Baldwin didn’t show up.”

The group declined to release specifics of the ad other than it starts Thursday and will run for three weeks.
