Walker continues to push education theme in latest TV ad

Gov. Scott Walker continued to push an education theme in the latest TV ad of his re-election bid, this time featuring an elementary teacher who says his reforms have put more money into the classroom.

Walker declared himself the “education governor” as he released a TV ad last month featuring a Racine teacher.

The latest ad, featuring a woman identified as Jeanie, strikes similar themes. She says in the spot she’s taught elementary school for 27 years and loves her job. She says Walker’s reforms mean $200 more per year for every student with “additional funds to help schools in rural areas with transportation and access to high-speed internet.”

The spot then cuts to Walker, who says, “We’re continuing to put students first, with a record investment in schools, more support for our technical college programs, and a six-year tuition freeze for all UW campuses.”

The ad, the eighth of Walker’s re-election bid, will air statewide and on digital platforms, the campaign said.
