A Better Wisconsin Together Political Fund released two new ads this week critical of GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels’ stance on abortion and gun control. The ad on abortion is airing on digital statewide, as well as on TV in Milwaukee and Madison. The ad on gun control is only being aired on digital statewide. Additional details on the buy were not provided by the group.

The abortion ad opens with the narrator saying “radical Tim Michels” supports Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban, which only allows abortion to save the life of the mother. In the spot, Michels says “that’s correct” when asked by a reporter if he “wouldn’t support exceptions for rape or incest.” The spot also reiterates previous claims that Michels’ family foundation donated to a group working to outlaw birth control, as well as another group that uses cell phone data to track women who go to an abortion center.

The spot concludes with the narrator urging viewers to “vote no on radical Tim Michels.”

The gun control spot claims that Michels opposes closing a “loophole that lets some domestic abusers buy guns.” The spot concludes with the narrator saying Michels’ views are “dangerous and too divisive for Wisconsin.”
