A group calling itself Wisconsin RINO Hunters is running digital ads that call independent guv candidate Joan Beglinger “the true conservative choice” in the race.

WisPoiltics.com reported earlier this week the group had reported digital and mail opposing Republican nominee Tim Michels. Its updated filing shows the group has put $624,541 behind the effort.

The narrator in one digital ad running on Facebook says the mainstream media “says you have no voice. You’ve got to suck it up. They say vote for their hand-picked RINO Tim Michels. But that’s fake news.”

The narrator says Beglinger is “actually pro-life, pro-gun, pro-Trump.” It then plays a clip of Beglinger saying, “If we don’t take back our state, we’re not going to live in a free country.”

Former President Trump has endorsed Michels. Beglinger has also endorsed the GOP nominee and dropped out of the race, though her name remains on the ballot.

The contact listed on the group’s filing with the state Ethics Commission didn’t return messages from WisPolitics.com this week.
