Republican Governors Assoc. releases second ad targeting Mary Burke

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Republican Governors Association(RGA) released its second attack ad against Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke on Monday.

The latest ad resembles the first in that it focuses on Burke's time spent as state commerce secretary under Democratic Governor Jim Doyle, a tenure that ran from 2005 to 2007.

In response to the latest ad, a Burke campaign spokesman says the RGA is "clearly panicked" and running "ridiculous negative attacks."

Burke is running against incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker in November. In addition to her time as Commerce Secretary, Burke has a business background as a former executive at Trek Bicycle Corp., a company founded by her father.

The RGA has not confirmed how much it's spending on the ads, but liberal group One Wisconsin Now says the ad buy is worth $1.2 million.
