Republican candidate for governor Tim Michels’ campaign launched two ads this week. The campaign did not release any details on the new buy. In the first ad, Michels is shown standing on a pile of sinks. “Tony Evers and his cronies are throwing the kitchen sink at me,” says Michels as he dodges a sink thrown in his direction. Michels goes on to say that he’ll fight Evers’ “radical agenda, get tough on crime, and take on Madison special interests.

The second ad is a revised version of an ad released by Michels during the primary. It features the construction executive walking through a dilapidated parking lot in Milwaukee, saying his company has worked in areas like that across America and has “witnessed the surge in crime.” Michels then says that Evers “blames the police, coddles criminals, and stood by as Kenosha burned.” The spot concludes with Michels saying “I’m Tim Michels. I’m not a politician. In the army, I swore an oath to keep America safe and that’s what I’ll do for Wisconsin.”
