The Democratic Governors Association is out with a new ad knocking GOP guv candidate Tim Michels for saying his views on abortion mirror the state’s 1849 ban.
The spot is the second of the general election through the DGA’s Alliance for Common Sense. The DGA said it is a seven-figure buy that will run in most Wisconsin media markets outside of Madison on multiple platforms.
The narrator says in the ad, “Wisconsin politicians wrote a law that banned abortion and jailed doctors who performed them.” The ad then plays a clip from an interview of Michels saying the law is “an exact mirror of my position.”
The narrator then says Michels would “ban abortion, even in cases of rape or incest, and send doctors to jail for performing them.”
The spot shows images of women as the narrator says, “It’s not 1849 anymore, and while we might not have been able to vote back then, we sure can now.”
The spot closes with the screen reading, “Tim Michels’ agenda: Too radical for Wisconsin.”
