MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A conservative group that’s part of a network run by Kansas billionaire Charles Koch is spending another $1.5 million to help Gov. Scott Walker win re-election.
Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin announced Wednesday it was releaing a third ad starting Thursday targeting Walker’s Democratic opponent, Tony Evers. It comes after two previous ad buys since the primary election in August, bringing total spending by the group since then to $4.6 million. They also spent about $1 million on pro-Walker ads before the primary.
The latest ad continues the AFP argument against Evers, saying supporting him is risky because he won’t say how much he might raise taxes.
Evers has said he wants to raise some taxes, and lower others, to help the middle class and pay for roads.
