The Friends of Brian Hagedorn campaign released its first TV ad today, “Lily,” focused on the Hagedorn family’s personal connection to the opioid crisis and Judge Brian Hagedorn’s commitment to fighting it on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
“The opioid crisis hits home for Judge Hagedorn and his wife, Christina, who adopted a little girl born with an opiate addiction,” Campaign Manager Alexa Ardis said. “Judge Hagedorn knows firsthand the damage the opioid crisis can do and will work hard to protect the public on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.”
