The state Dem Party’s TV ad targeting U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson calls the Oshkosh Republican “unfit to serve.”
The spot is running on broadcast TV in the Green Bay, La Crosse and Wausau markets and statewide on cable. A party spokeswoman said the buy, which is more than $100,000, also includes a digital component.
The spot opens with a news report on the Capitol Police officer who died during last week’s violent protest and video of people storming the building. The narrator says the mob was “incited by power-hungry politicians like Ron Johnson.”
The narrator then quotes a Journal Sentinel editorial that called Johnson a leading member of the sedition caucus and called on him to resign.
