MADISON — Republican Tommy Thompson is continuing to use the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in television ads against his Democratic opponent Tammy Baldwin in the race for Wisconsin’s open Senate seat.

Thompson launched a new ad over the weekend, taking Baldwin to task for a series of votes in Congress against budget bills that included funding for body armor for troops. His first ad released last week criticized Baldwin for a 2006 vote against a resolution honoring victims of the attacks, even though she had voted nine other times on similar resolutions.

Baldwin’s campaign spokesman John Kraus calls the ad a lie and pointed to votes Baldwin had taken in support of body armor for troops.

With the election just eight days away, polls show the race to be a dead heat.

    It's Tammy Baldwin's record as a 14 year congresswoman. Its but a few of the dozens of examples of Tammy's extremism, which is not representative of Wisconsin.

    You know what is more shocking is Baldwin voted for BILLIONS of wasteful pork barrel spending, but co-sponsored bills to block funding for essentials such as body armor and medical supplies for our troops, WHILE THEY ARE ON THE FRONT LINES of Iraq and Afghanistan! What are the REAL priorities of Tammy Baldwin? What a total disregard for the brave men and women who serve.

    How can you defend Baldwin's four votes AGAINST sanctions on IRAN? and her failure to condemn Iran's prime minister, who said to the UN that the holocaust never happened?

    Tammy Baldwin = total extreme whackjob. Running FROM her record in congress.
