New TV ad hits Walker on pre-existing condition coverage

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A new television ad from a group aligned with the Democratic Governors Association features a woman fighting breast cancer saying Gov. Scott Walker doesn’t care about families like hers.

The ad unveiled Tuesday by A Stronger Wisconsin is part of a new seven-figure ad buy. The Democratic Governors Association has pledged to spend $3.8 million on the race.

The woman in the ad says if Walker takes away protections for people with pre-existing conditions she won’t be able to afford live-saving treatments.

Walker has been a longtime proponent of repealing the federal health care law that provides protections for people with pre-existing conditions. But this year he called on the Legislature to pass a state law to guarantee coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Walker spokesman Austin Altenburg calls the ad a “false attack” and says Democrat Tony Evers should denounce it.
