The rest of us struggle BECAUSE of Scott Walker.
It's not working. Never has. Never will. It's time for a change.
Yeah, that'd be a great--and by great, I mean terrible--ad, considering how much the rest of the state just loves being told how much better Madison is than them.
People who will miss the point of that ad, that Walker has failed THEM, aren't persuadable anyway. The election will most likely turn on moderate, undecided voters who can be persuaded. Walker doesn't abandon his base when he runs, so the Democratic nominee shouldn't either.
