The Ron Johnson and Sean Duffy campaigns today launched a TV and digital ad in Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, highlighting their approaches as hard-working outsiders who are fighting for Wisconsin families by helping to grow jobs, stop government corruption, and protect our Second Amendment rights.
You can watch the ad, entitled “Outsiders,” here. Using footage from both candidates’ iconic ads, the ad begins, “You might not think a businessman with a whiteboard and a lumberjack with an axe have much in common. But Ron Johnson and Sean Duffy are both hard-working outsiders who tell it like it is.”
Featuring Ron at the whiteboard he used to highlight the number of career politicians in Washington and Sean with the axe he’s used to talk about cutting Washington down to size, the ad continues, “They might use different tools, but they’re both fighting for Wisconsin families – working their hearts out to grow jobs and opportunities, stop government waste and corruption, and protect Second Amendment rights.”
The ad closes with Ron wearing one of Sean’s famous lumberjack flannel shirts.
- Ron helped start his own business in 1979, an Oshkosh manufacturing company. He supports getting Washington out of the way of jobs and economic growth by scrapping our current tax code in favor of pro-growth tax reform, and cutting back on burdensome regulations that make it harder and more expensive for businesses to grow.
- As chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Ron has used his outsider’s perspective to find areas of agreement, getting 28 bills passed out of the committee and signed into law – much of it legislation to make the federal government more efficient, more effective, and more accountable.
- Ron has fought for our Second Amendment rights, opposing U.S. Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland in part because of his opposition to the individual right to bear arms under the U.S. Constitution. He has also supported common-sense proposals to enforce existing gun laws and help prevent guns from landing in the hands of terrorists and criminals.
