The pro-Trump super PAC America First Action has started a second TV ad in Wisconsin focusing on the protests in Kenosha with a female business owner saying the Biden-Harris ticket “won’t even try” to stop violent demonstrations.
A PAC spokeswoman said the ad will run in the Green Bay, La Crosse and Wausau markets on digital, cable and broadcast. It is part of a $6.5 million TV buy the group is running in Wisconsin between September and Election Day.
The 60-second spot features Kimberly Warner, the owner of Authentique, a specialty gift shop in Kenosha. Warner says she’d seen riots on the news, but never thought “they’d come to my front door” in a small town. She says people graffitied her shop and even tried to break in with a crowbar while “other businesses burned to the ground.”
“If mob violence can happen here, it will happen everywhere,” she says. “The Harris-Biden ticket says these out-of-control protests will never stop.”
The spot then plays a clip of Harris appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” June 17 saying protests are “not going to let up. And they should not.”
“We need safe streets to protect our businesses, our communities, and Joe Biden is just too weak to protect us,” Warner says.
