Polack Releases First General Election Ad

Ad contrasts Steil being bought by corporations with Polack’s history of service to our country

Racine, WI – Democrat Roger Polack, a Racine native who served in Afghanistan and in both the Bush and Obama administrations, today released his first ad in the general election to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District.

The ad focuses on Republican opponent Bryan Steil’s corporate PAC contributions (over $510,353 as of 9/14), as well as his votes directly counter to the interest of Wisconsin families, including voting against lowering prescription drug prices and against the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act—in the face of a virus ravaging our country that has killed over 1,200 Wisconsinites. In contrast, the ad highlights Roger Polack’s service to our country and the fact that he is not taking a dime of corporate PAC money.

“Voters have a clear choice this November: a candidate in me who grew up in a family that struggled to make ends meet and will fight for the people of Southeastern Wisconsin, or Bryan Steil, who time after time has prioritized corporations over the needs of his constituents,” said Polack. “I’ll never take a dime of corporate PAC money because I’m going to represent the people of Wisconsin’s 1st District, not corporate special interests. Meanwhile, Congressman Bryan Steil has taken over half a million dollars from corporate PACs––and he’s in Washington working for them––not for us.”

About Roger Polack
Roger Polack grew up in Racine, one of four children in a blue-collar family.  After graduating from Horlick High School, he put himself through UW-Madison and ultimately law school at Georgetown University, studying law at night while working on some of the most pressing national security issues our country faces during the day. He served in the Bush and Obama administrations as an intelligence analyst and then a senior policy advisor. Polack deployed to Afghanistan multiple times to take on the Taliban, shut down their financing pipeline, and expose corruption in Afghanistan.  He also worked to hold China’s feet to the fire on investment and national security issues and to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Since then he’s served as an attorney focusing on public international law and investigations. He’s running for Congress because he wants to continue serving our country and ensure that every family, just like his own, has the opportunity to build a better life for themselves.
