Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) “latest TV ad [released Tuesday] touts his UW tuition freeze and a new plan that would provide college graduates up to $5,000 in tax credits for working in Wisconsin after they finish school. The spot opens with Walker in a lecture hall asking those assembled if they’re worried about paying for college as some raise their hands. Walker says he understands, and that’s why he froze UW tuition for six years. He adds he wants to cap it for another four and making it possible for some people to finish degrees in three years. … The spot is Walker’s 17th of his re-election bid.” (WisPolitics.com)

DGA AD. “The DGA’s newest TV ad features a woman fighting breast cancer who charges Gov. Scott Walker ‘doesn’t seem to care about families like mine.’

The spot features a woman identified as Mary, of Madison, who recalls finding out she had breast cancer … Mary then says if Walker takes away protections for pre-existing conditions, she wouldn’t be able to ‘afford the treatments that are saving my life. It’s a matter of life and death for me.’ … The DGA said the spot, done through A Stronger Wisconsin, is part of a new seven-figure buy that follows up its original $1.8 million run.” (WisPolitics.com)
