[Oshkosh, WI] Oshkosh manufacturer and U.S. Senate Candidate Ron Johnson’s campaign launched a new television ad which will air statewide in response to Senator Russ Feingold’s smear tactics. The ad, “Feingold Mud,” is a response to the first attack of the campaign, a cynical smear ploy from an 18-year incumbent desperate to hang onto power.
“Senator Feingold doesn’t know how to create jobs, so he tried to create a diversion,” said Juston Johnson, Campaign Manager for Ron Johnson for Senate. “Ron is taking the fight to Washington double-speak and setting the record straight in order to steer the conversation towards creating jobs and getting our economy moving again.”
Watch the ad:
RON: ” I’m Ron Johnson I approved this message.”
ANNCR: “28 years in politics and Russ Feingold is stuck in the mud.
Feingold’s starting his campaign slinging mud at Ron Johnson.
Ron Johnson OPPOSES drilling in the Great Lakes and Russ Feingold knows it.
Great Lakes drilling’s already illegal and Feingold knows that too. because he voted against the law that protected our lakes.
That’s right. Feingold was the only Great Lakes senator to vote no.
Feingold played politics.
Partisan politician Russ Feingold, stuck in the mud.”
