Republican Neumann launches first TV ad


MADISON (AP) -- Republican Mark Neumann is running the first television advertisement in the Wisconsin governor's race.

Neumann says the ad is running statewide starting Monday. It is also available on his Web site.

Neumann does not mention his primary opponent, Republican Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker, in the 30-second ad titled "Humble Beginnings." The ad also doesn't mention the fact that Neumann previously served two terms in Congress in the 1990s.

In fact, the narrator instead says Neumann is "not a career politician but a businessman."

The ad shows Neumann in a hard hat looking at blueprints, emphasizing his private sector experience as a homebuilder and developer in the Milwaukee area.

Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is also running for governor.
