The liberal groups Progressive Change Campaign Committee, the Wisconsin division of Democracy For America, and MoveOn have a new ad up in the state Senate recalls, going after one of the higher-value targets, state Joint Finance Committee co-chair Alberta Darling.

The ad features a local resident, introducing himself as a teacher. “To me, nothing is more important than education,” the man says. “But Alberta Darling voted for budget cuts that hurt our community schools, all to give tax cuts to the rich and big corporations.”

“I’ve voted Republican in the past. I’ve voted for Ronald Reagan, George Bush and George W. Bush. And I’ve voted for Alberta Darling. But we need someone on our side — I’m voting for Sandy Pasch for State Senate.”
