• WI-Gov: EMILY's List recently reserved $1.2 million to support Democrat Mary Burke, and the group has begun its new ad campaign. EMILY's spot features a doctor calling for Republican Gov. Scott Walker to get out of her patients' private lives and stop trying to outlaw abortion.
Walker wasted no time airing a response ad. Speaking to the camera, Walker describes himself as pro-life but someone who wants women to be safe and to consider her options. He claims that the bill he supports does still leave the final decision about whether or not to get an abortion to a woman and her doctor.
Burke also has a new spot, featuring news reports describing how other Midwestern states are seeing their economies significantly improve, but how Wisconsin is not. The narrator then blames Walker for the state's sluggish growth.
