Gov. Scott Walker today released a new TV ad highlighting his work to combat opioid abuse and drug addiction.
It’s the second ad of Walker’s re-election campaign, following one his campaign put out Tuesday on job training grants.
The new spot, which will run statewide on TV and digital platforms, features the Lybert family, who founded Your Choice to Live, a nonprofit that educates the public about opioids.
Sandi Lybert opens the spot saying her son, Tyler, was only 80 pounds and “I had his funeral planned.”
Tyler then says he was “I was addicted for years. But we stuck together as a family and we fought back.”
Rick Lybert says they’re lucky because “We still have our son,” while Ashleigh Lybert sais that’s why they started the group.
“We need support, like Gov. Walker’s H.O.P.E Agenda,” Tyler says.
The spot then switches to Walker looking into the camera as he says, “We’ve seen too many families devastated by addiction. Together, we’ve passed bipartisan legislation to reduce opioid abuse and increase drug treatment — to save lives.”
