The Democratic National Committee is running a new ad on broadcast TV in Milwaukee that features President Biden touting the COVID-19 bill he signed last week.
The ad also will run on national cable, a spokeswoman said.
The party also placed a billboard ad along I-94 in Milwaukee knocking U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, for opposing the bill. The billboard reads that “help is here” with “$1,400 checks & shots in arms.” The other half reads, “No thanks to Senator Ron Johnson who voted no.”
The TV ad is a 60-second spot featuring clips of Biden touting the package for providing resources to “expand and speed up manufacturing and distribution of vaccines” to “get the country in a place to get back to normal” and to get “checks out the door starting this month.”
“When we took office, I promised the American people that help was on the way,” Biden says in the ad. “Today, I can say we’ve taken one more giant forward in delivering on that promise.”
