The Republican State Leadership Committee released a new TV ad today that says Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch will protect those with pre-existing conditions and anyone saying otherwise is “just trying to scare you.”
The RSLC said it put nearly $250,000 behind the ad, which is running on broadcast and cable TV.
The spot focuses on Kleefisch, who the narrator says is a cancer survivor and “That’s the ultimate pre-existing condition.”
The narrator ads Kleefisch and Walker “passed bipartisan reforms to lower Wisconsin health care premiums and they’ll call a special session to guarantee pre-existing conditions. Guarantee.”
The narrator adds, “If anyone says otherwise, they’re just trying to scare you.”
The narrator then notes Kleefisch has said once you’ve heard the word cancer, “nothing else scares you much.”
“Don’t listen to others. Listen to Rebecca,” the narrator says to close the spot.
