Senior Vice President of the Milwaukee Bucks Alex Lasry, a candidate in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, announced the release of a new, six-figure digital advertisement campaign.

The advertisement targets incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for meeting with “Vladimir Putin’s cronies” on July 4, 2018. He then references a Russian news agency’s report on Johnson’s comments about the trip, including a quote that American sanctions on Russia were “way out of proportion;” The sanctions in question were enacted due to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Lasry also quotes a news report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) warned Johnson that he could be a target of Russian disinformation.

Lasry closes the advertisement by saying that “Wisconsin only has one U.S. Senator we can count on to represent our values of freedom and democracy.” He promises to “…represent you as a Wisconsinite and as an American.”
