Uses whiteboard to add what Senator Feingold left out of his new TV ad
Today the Ron Johnson campaign went back to the whiteboard to correct what Senator Feingold left out of his new TV ad. The new video, titled “Hands,”
reminds Wisconsinites of Senator Feingold’s 18 years in Washington, $8,000-per-lecture salary at Stanford University, and the fact that 70% of Senator Feingold’s contributions come from out of state — breaking his promise to Wisconsinites.
- On Tuesday, Ron launched his next statewide TV and digital ad, on Senator Feingold’s series of false ads and his broken promise to the people of Wisconsin – all of which reveals he’s a career politician who will say one thing and do another on any issue if it will get him back to Washington.
- On Nov. 3, 1991, during his first campaign for Senate, Senator Feingold made a promise to the people of Wisconsin that he’d raise more than half his money from them. He painted this and other promises on his garage door as part of his contract with the voters of Wisconsin.
- During a Democrat primary debate on Aug. 28, 1992, Senator Feingold stated that his promise was forever, saying, “I’m making a pledge for the future.”
- As of the second quarter of 2016, about 70 percent of Senator Feingold’s money came from out of state. He’s also collected more than $500,000 from lobbyist bundlers after years of railing against the influence of lobbyists, and is accepting help from dark money and Super PACs he still claims to be against.
