Bill Clinton appears in new Burke campaign ad

Former President Bill Clinton is appearing in a new campaign ad for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.

Burke is in a close race with Republican Gov. Scott Walker, and Democrats have been bringing in big names to help rally support for her.

Clinton spoke on Burke’s behalf on Oct. 24, and President Barack Obama campaigned for her Tuesday. Both appearances were in Milwaukee, a Democratic stronghold.

Both parties believe turnout will be key to winning Tuesday’s election.

Clinton says in the ad released Friday that Burke will be a governor “who brings people together across party lines, not dividing them.”

His remarks are a dig at Walker, whose signature legislation eliminating most public workers’ union rights divided the state.

Clinton does not mention Walker by name in the ad.
