Tom Nelson, the Outagamie County Executive and a candidate in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, recently released two new campaign ads.
The first was released digitally before his appearance at a debate for the Democratic primary candidates. The ad criticizes Alex Lasry, a former executive with the Milwaukee Bucks and his primary opponent, for being a “trust fund kid” who did not grow up or live in Wisconsin until recently. In an accompanying tweet, Nelson said that Lasry was a “self-funding plutocrat” and that “Congress needs less members of the 1%, not more.”

In the second ad, Nelson says that he’s “won six times in Trump Country, pulling for what matters; jobs, Medicare for All, union rights, women’s rights, a planet in crisis.” In a press release, Nelson says that the ad “highlights major contrasts with other frontrunners like Alex Lasry and Sarah Godlewski with references to his middle-class Wisconsin roots and that, unlike Mandela Barnes, he has consistently advocated for Medicare for All.”
