Gov. Scott Walker’s latest TV ad features employees of Kafka Granite praising his policies for helping grow the Mosinee company.
The spot opens with Glenn Kafka, who founded the business, saying the company worked hard during the recession to keep going and was able to avoid laying off anyone.
His daughter, Tiffany, who works for the company, adds, “And thanks to Gov. Walker’s economic reform and tax cuts, we started growing.”
Glenn Kafka says the company has added 40 new jobs “since the Wisconsin comeback.”
The spot then cuts to a man identified as Dean, a maintenance manager, saying, “Good-paying jobs that support families like mine.”
Dylan, a diesel mechanic, adds, “And support our community too.”
As with the other TV ads Walker has released so far in his re-election bid, the spot then cuts to the guv looking directly into the camera.
“You know, more people are working now than ever before, and unemployment, it’s hit an all-time low,” Walker says to close the spot. “Our reforms are helping Wisconsin’s economy grow.”
Walker’s campaign said the spot will run on TV as well as online and social media platforms, but declined to release details on the markets in which it will run. The campaign also declined to say how much it’s spending on the ad. The liberal One Wisconsin Now, which tracks ad buys, says Walker has a $1.5 million buy on Wisconsin TV through early July.
