VoteVets says it’s starting $1 million defending Baldwin on Tomah VA

VoteVets says it’s up with a new $1 million TV buy defending U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin from a new attack ad over the Tomah VA.

The spot opens with a clip from a $1.6 million buy released last week by the Concerned Veterans for America as a narrator says, “Out-of-state billionaires are playing politics with Wisconsin’s veterans.”

Another adds the attacks against Baldwin, D-Madison, have been labeled “false and misleading by local news organizations and independent fact checkers.”

“Here’s the truth,” the second narrator says. “Sen. Tammy Baldwin called for multiple investigations and worked across party lines to pass reforms that strengthened oversight at VA hospitals like Tomah.”

VoteVets tweeted a link to the ad Friday, but a spokesman did not return an email over the weekend seeking additional details about the buy.
