Vukmir lightens approach in latest Senate race ad

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir is taking a much lighter approach with her second television ad of the campaign, three weeks before the primary.

Vukmir’s first ad showed her sitting with her holstered handgun, speaking about death threats she said she received as an actor recreated a threatening voicemail message.

In the new spot released Monday, Vukmir instead employs humor and cartoonish graphics to talk about how she stood with Gov. Scott Walker against “big labor bosses” and how she will “stand with President Trump” to cut spending, build the wall and “finally drain the swamp.”

Her campaign says the ad will run on broadcast and cable across the state, but wouldn’t say how large it is.

She faces Kevin Nicholson in the Aug. 14 Republican primary.
