Tammy Baldwin Ad Hits Back At Tommy Thompson On 9/11 Victims
Democratic nominee Tammy Baldwin launched a new ad Wednesday in the Wisconsin Senate race, responding to Republican Tommy Thompson's ad the previous day that accused Baldwin of dishonoring the victims of 9/11. And the ad turns the table, accusing Thompson of failing to provide care for first responders, and profiting from it.
"Tommy Thompson’s ad is a disgrace," the announcer says. "The truth: Time and again, Tammy Baldwin has supported honoring victims of 9/11.
"And Tommy Thompson? He got a government contract to provide health care to 9/11 first responders. But Tommy took advantage, leaving them without the care they were promised. Tommy Thompson personally made over $3 million off the deal. Tommy Thompson should be ashamed."
