Club for Growth Action has launched a TV bid knocking Kleefisch, accusing her of taking taxpayer-funded “junkets” and taking a “cushy job in Washington.”
The Club for Growth didn’t immediately return a message from WisPolitics.com.
A Kleefisch ally told WisPolitics.com the buy is $1.3 million through the Aug. 9 primary. It includes broadcast, cable and radio in the Green Bay and Milwaukee markets.
The narrator in the spot says Kleefisch spent a dozen years “building her career in politics” before asking “what has she done for us?”
The narrator says Kleefisch used taxpayer resources traveling “across the globe on junkets hosted by foreign interests” while lieutenant governor and then took a “cushy job in Washington” after leaving office. She also went on the payroll “of the same Madison insiders propping up her campaign.”
“Rebecca Kleefisch works for them, not for us,” the narrator says to close the spot.
