In addition to the recall election against Gov. Scott Walker, there will be four state Senate elections in Wisconsin on June 5. Democrats only need to win one or those four elections to take control of the chamber outright.

In one of those four elections, Democratic state Rep. Donna Seidel has started running a powerful new ad against her opponent, Republican state Rep. Jerry Petrowski, about his participation in the Republican war on women. Check it out:

Here's a transcript, spoken by a rotating group of women looking directly into the camera:

I have something to say to Jerry Petrowski.

I work hard every day. And you think women shouldn't get paid the same as men for doing the same work?

And when it comes to my health Jerry, and the lives of my family and friends, you slashed funding for breast and cervical cancer screenings and voted against emergency contraception for victims of rape and incest.

I have something to say to Jerry Petrowski.

Jerry, how could you? How could you could you do that to my daughter? How could you do that to my mother? How could you do that to us?

Jerry, we expected more from you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
