A liberal veterans political action committee has launched a $1 million ad campaign to benefit Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, just days after a conservative group attacked her record.
VoteVets.org on Thursday released the ad it says will run statewide for three weeks both on television and digitally. The ad features three veterans praising Baldwin for sponsoring a bill signed into law last year changing the way opioids are handed out at veterans homes.
The $1.5 million ad from the conservative Concerned Veterans for America criticizes her handling of the prescription drug scandal at the veterans hospital in Tomah.
That issue is certain to be a key point in Baldwin's race this year. One veteran in the new ad says attacks against Baldwin on this issue "just aren't true."
