Tom Nelson’s campaign announced it purchased a billboard ad this week calling out Senator Ron Johnson for accepting $1.2 million in campaign donations from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and “ [refusing] to take any action to address shooting massacres in the U.S.” According to a press release issued by the Nelson campaign, the billboard can be seen in Oshkosh on Highway 41 near Johnson’s home. Nelson’s campaign manager, Irene Lin, is quoted in the press release as saying, “We desperately need Tom, a Senator not bought and paid for by the NRA.”

Nelson will face off against Mandela Barnes, Alex Lasry, and Sarah Godlewski in the Democratic senate primary on August 9th.
