Clinton Airing Ads in Wisconsin

Hillary Clinton

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Hillary Clinton is airing ads in Wisconsin for the first time in the general election campaign.

Clinton’s Wisconsin campaign director Jake Hajdu said Friday that the ads will begin airing in Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay on Monday.

On Tuesday, Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine will campaign in the state, his first appearance in Wisconsin since August. Clinton has yet to make a general election campaign stop.

Polls have consistently shown Clinton with a lead over Donald Trump in the state.

Hajdu said in a statement that the ads were also designed to help other Democrats on the ballot, including former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold. He’s in a rematch against Republican Sen. Ron Johnson.

The ad buy was at least $100,000. Clinton’s campaign did not release the exact amount.
