New ads highlight Tony Evers’ plans to increase gas, property, income taxes
October 11, 2018
[Madison, WI] — This week, Governor Scott Walker released two new ads contrasting his bold record of delivering over $8 billion in tax relief for Wisconsin families with Tony Evers’ reckless plan to take Wisconsin backward by increasing taxes on families, farmers, and job creators across Wisconsin.
See what they are saying about the ads here:
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Gov. Scott Walker is making his pitch to voters as they fill up their tanks. His newest ad isn’t on TV but can be seen on 3,000 screens mounted on gas pumps across the state. In it, the GOP governor tells viewers his Democratic opponent, state schools Superintendent Tony Evers, is willing to raise the gas tax. “I’ll lower taxes and keep fighting for you,” Walker says in the ad.
From WKOW: You might see and hear the governor next time you fill up at the pump. Gov. Scott Walker’s new digital ad will play on monitors at gas stations statewide. The ad criticizes Walker’s Democratic opponent Tony Evers for wanting to increase the gas tax to help pay for the crumbling roads in the state. Walker hit Evers on wanting to raise the gas tax by $1, an option that Evers denies but has yet to clarify how much he’s willing to increase.
From the Journal Times: Walker’s campaign on Tuesday unveiled an ad that will play on screens at gas stations as people are refueling their cars. In the spot, Walker hits Democratic opponent Tony Evers for being willing to raise the gas tax to pay for roads.
From WisPolitics: Gov. Scott Walker’s latest TV ad features a man who warns Dem nominee Tony Evers would raise taxes and hurt family farms. The spot will run on TV as well as online and digital platforms. Walker’s campaign only identified the man as Cal, who opens the spot saying his family has worked the farm for three generations, adding it’s the “future for our daughter and her family and we’d like to have them have a better start than what we did.”
