RSLC Launches Ad Buy on WI Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling’s Weak Record
The ad campaign aims to expose Shilling’s penchant for playing politics at the expense of her constituents.
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) launched a six-figure, multi-platform ad buy revealing Wisconsin Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling’s record of self-service in the state legislature. The ad campaign, which includes radio, digital, mail and the website ShadyShilling.com will run in the La Crosse market with the aim of exposing Shilling’s penchant for playing politics at the expense of her constituents.
“Over the past 16 years, Jennifer Shilling has worked her way up the political ladder by selling out Wisconsin families in favor of Madison special interests,” said RSLC President Matt Walter. “Time and again, she has voted against students, workers and homeowners to advance her own agenda, currying favors by opposing tuition and property tax freezes while blindly supporting Obamacare. Jennifer Shilling is a pro at playing politics, but she strikes out every time when it comes to standing up for her constituents. We are here to deliver a message: her job is not a game — and it is time to stop acting like it.”
