The Republican Governors Association has two new ads in the Wisconsin recall race against Gov. Scott Walker, targeting each of the most likely choices for the Democratic nomination: Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk.
Last week, the RGA ran a single ad that went after both Barrett and Falk. Now, with the recall election officially triggered by state officials, the RGA is in the field with these two separate spots.
