RGA releases ad attacking Barrett, Falk
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Republican Governors Association has launched a new television ad in Wisconsin attacking Democrats Tom Barrett and Kathleen Falk.
The 30-second ad that began running statewide Friday goes after Barrett's record on taxing and spending while Milwaukee mayor and Falk's record as Dane County executive.
Falk has declared that she is running against Republican Gov. Scott Walker in a recall election expected to take place either May 8 or June 5. Barrett is considering getting into the race and has said he will make a decision by April 3.
The RGA ad seems to indicate that at least among that group Barrett is likely to get in.
Two other Democrats, state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout and Secretary of State Doug La Follette, are also running.
