U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson announced a new biographical TV ad today narrated by the Oshkosh Republican’s brother.

The campaign declined to release details of the buy, other than saying it will run on TV. It’s Johnson’s first since Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes won the Dem primary.

Dean Johnson says the lawmaker’s “work and family define him,” recounting lessons taught by their parents, Ron Johnson’s early jobs and his marriage to Jane, his wife of 45 years.

The spot then turns to the company that Johnson started with his brother-in-law.

“His business didn’t export jobs, it exported plastic,” Dean Johnson says. “His quiet but extensive charitable work was never done for show but simply to lend a helping hand — a value he learned from our parents. He’s my brother, and my best friend.”
