After dropping out of the Democratic primary race last week, Alex Lasry announced that he will utilize a $600,000 ad buy to run an attack ad against Sen. Ron Johnson in the Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay markets. In a statement, Lasry said that Democrats must now come together behind Mandela Barnes in order to beat Johnson, “which is why [he is] setting the tone by significantly investing in the future of this race and Wisconsin.”
The ad features a voice over which slams Johnson’s record on American industry, and additionally alleges that Johnson personally profited from a tax law which rewarded companies that outsource American jobs to China. Johnson has refuted this claim, which PolitiFact also said earlier this year had no provision which would have moved American jobs to China.
