The Dem group Opportunity Wisconsin is out with a new TV ad that accuses GOP U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson of using his powers to serve himself rather than Wisconsin.
The group said it’s spending seven figures on the ad, which will run on broadcast, cable and digital platforms in the Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee and Wausau markets.
The narrator in the ad says an investigation found Johnson “pushed through a special tax loophole that benefited his own family’s business.” After it became law, he “cashed out of the company for $5 million” and has doubled his wealth since taking office.
“Look up the facts, and tell Ron Johnson to stop passing tax laws that benefit himself,” the narrator says to close the spot.
Opportunity Wisconsin says it’s spent more than $4 million on TV ads since early 2021 targeting Johnson.
