3/18: Alex Lasry releases seven-figure TV ad targeting Ron Johnson


Alex Lasry, the Senior Vice President of the Milwaukee Bucks and a candidate in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, announced in a press release that it has launched his third seven-figure ad buy of his campaign.

The ad will run throughout the state on broadcast and cable television. It will be supplemented with a separate, digital media ad buy.

The ad criticizes incumbent Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) for not working to persuade Oshkosh Corporation to construct a new fleet of up to 165,000 postal vehicles in Wisconsin. It also claims that he supports a Republican plan that phases out Social Security and Medicare and “increases taxes on middle class families.”

In contrast, Lasry says he wants to “get more money into working people’s pockets and cut their taxes.” He also touts his endorsements from multiple unions, claiming that he is “the strongest Democrat to beat Ron Johnson.”
