Walker TV ad counters suggestion he backs repealing protections for pre-existing conditions

Gov. Scott Walker’s latest TV ad features Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch vowing protections for those with pre-existing conditions will remain in place as long as the two are in office.

The spot responds to an ad from a group associated with the Democratic Governors Association. It features a woman fighting breast cancer who charges Walker “doesn’t seem to care about families like mine.” It also charges Walker would allow insurance companies to take away protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

Kleefisch opens the new Walker ad saying she’s never forgotten her battle with cancer and that’s why she’s shocked “Evers and his allies say Scott Walker would end protections for people with pre-existing conditions. People like me.”

She adds their bipartisan plan helps people keep their coverage by lowering premiums, and people with pre-existing conditions in Wisconsin are already covered.

“And as long as Scott and I are in office, they always will be,” she says to close the spot.

Walker’s campaign said it will air statewide, including during the Green Bay Packers game on Sunday.
