Billionaire conservative donor Charles Koch’s political network will spend more than $1 million on ads boosting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, The Hill reports.
Americans for Prosperity’s Wisconsin chapter announced Friday that it will buy about $1.3 million worth of digital and television ads targeting Walker’s midterm opponent, Democrat state schools superintendent Tony Evers.
"Evers is open to gas tax hikes. Even a dollar more per gallon," says a narrator in the ad. "New tolls too. He says everything is on the table."
Last month, AFP in Wisconsin spent $1.8 million on an ad campaign highlighting Walker’s education policies.
Walker’s campaign has previously released ads attacking Evers over his plan to reduce Wisconsin’s prison population, claiming that Evers has “a dangerous plan” that could lead to the release of "felons who’ve committed rape, assault, robbery and even kidnapping." Evers blasted these claims as a “lie,” and reiterating that his plan to reduce the prison population would not include the release of violent criminals.
"We’re not going to get in the gutter with Scott Walker," Evers told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
