MADISON, Wis.— As Wisconsinites start to see $1,400 COVID relief checks in their bank accounts, Opportunity Wisconsin has launched a new digital ad [WATCH: “NEWS”] that holds Senator Ron Johnson accountable for opposing the American Rescue Plan. The new ad is part of a six-figure digital ad campaign and follows the announcement of Opportunity Wisconsin’s launch of last week’s ad, “NO.” Last month, Opportunity Wisconsin kicked off a three-week, $1M statewide TV ad campaign featuring Wisconsin residents urging Senator Johnson to stop blocking COVID relief checks for Badger State families and workers.
Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin Program Director:
“Over the past few days, Wisconsin residents have started to see immediate relief from the American Rescue Plan – no thanks to Senator Johnson. As the Badger State starts to dig out of the devastation we’ve experienced, we can’t forget who fought for us and who failed us. Senator Johnson stood in the way of Wisconsin’s recovery and we must all hold him accountable for it.”
