And people besides the Wisconsin Democratic Party, which produced the ad up there, are noticing.
MADISON (AP) - Republican Senate candidate Tommy Thompson , whose campaign abruptly lost momentum after enjoying a healthy lead all year, is being urged by worried supporters and insiders to raise his profile on the campaign trail and on TV to avoid being swamped by a Democratic surge in the state. [...]
Thompson backers' concerns about his campaign's direction have been growing in the wake of recent polls showing problems for Republicans in the state, including GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. They are imploring Thompson to break out of the negative cycle by doing by what he did best in getting elected four times as governor: taking his campaign into communities to meet voters face to face.
Since that piece was written, last Thursday, he's emerged to complain to the National Review that he was just "exhausted" after his primary campaign. Apparently, he still hasn't recovered.
There's a reason Tammy Baldwin is winning. She's working to win. She's had more than two dozen events around the state since the August primary. Thompson has had around six.
Let's help her keep that momentum up.
