Happ launches first TV ad in attorney general race


October 25, 2014

MADISON - Democratic attorney general candidate Susan Happ's first television ad in the race against Republican Brad Schimel features her sitting atop a Harley-Davidson motorcycle while talking about protecting women.

Happ's campaign released the ad on Friday and said it will be running statewide. Schimel, the Waukesha County district attorney, released his first spot earlier this month. Happ previously ran a spot in the primary.

Happ is the Jefferson County district attorney. In the ad she says she prosecuted people who have threatened women, will protect women from domestic abuse, promises to crack down on Internet predators and will ensure women can make health care decisions with their doctors.

Both candidates are scheduled to debate on Friday night. A Marquette University Law School poll released last week showed the race is tied.
