The Greater Wisconsin Political Fund targets Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn on abortion in its latest TV ad, calling him “extreme” in his position.
The group said the ad will run on broadcast TV in Madison and via online platforms statewide.
Greater Wisconsin’s third TV ad of the campaign cites Hagedorn’s old blog in saying he supports outlawing all abortions, called the right to privacy ridiculous and suggested rape victims should be denied emergency contraception.
The narrator also says Hagedorn has called for overturning the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion and opposes abortion “even when a woman’s health is in danger.”
“That’s not justice. That’s extreme,” the narrator says before urging a vote against Hagedorn in the April 2 election, when he faces fellow Appeals Court Judge Lisa Neubauer.
