RGA buying ads highlighting Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A group that represents the nation's GOP governors is about to run a major TV ad blitz that attacks Scott Walker's Democratic challenger.

The Republican Governors Association Thursday announced a six-figure purchase for ads starting next Wednesday on broadcast and cable TV.

Group spokesman Jon Thompson said the ad would focus on Democrat Mary Burke's service under former Governor Jim Doyle. Burke was Doyle's commerce secretary for two years, and she's a former Trek Bicycle executive.

With the election still eight-and-a-half months away, two-thirds of voters in a recent Marquette poll were not ready to form an opinion about her yet.

The Republican ad will begin on the same day that thousands of documents will be released concerning former Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch -- and her conviction for illegally campaigning for Republicans while she was supposed to be working in Walker's former Milwaukee County executive office.

Rindfleisch is appealing that conviction.
