Tommy Thompson Releases Newest Ad, “Dangerous Path”
Baldwin’s Extreme, Far-Left Agenda Puts Our Country in Jeopardy
Madison, WI – The Tommy Thompson campaign released its newest television ad today titled, “Dangerous Path.” The ad features veterans from different branches of the military condemning Madison liberal Tammy Baldwin for her disrespect of the victims of September 11 and her failure to support our nation's service members. The ad can be seen in markets statewide.
“Wisconsin voters need to know that Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin put her extreme views above honoring the men and women who were murdered by terrorists in the September 11 attacks on our nation,” said Thompson. “From voting against providing our troops with proper body armor and medical supplies to siding with Iran on economic sanctions, it is clear that Tammy Baldwin’s far-left approach is too extreme for Wisconsin and too dangerous for our country. Unlike my opponent, there is nothing that I take more seriously than protecting and honoring our American heroes who put their lives on the line to defend our great nation in the pursuit of freedom.
“On September 11, 2001, I stood on the frontlines of Ground Zero with our first responders. And as Secretary of Health and Human Services, I executed the largest mobile response of emergency medical supplies and services in our nation's history to help the victims and first responders at the World Trade Center site. After witnessing the most tremendous acts of bravery and human compassion that I have ever seen in my life, I am offended by Baldwin’s decision to turn her back on the survivors of that horrific day.”
