Michels Hits the Airwaves
Ads Focus on Real Life Experience
Waukesha - Former Airborne Ranger, small business owner and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Tim Michels, will kick off a statewide television and radio campaign starting today. The first television ad highlights his twelve years as an Army Airborne Ranger and business background and features his wife Barbara and Mother Ruth Michels. "Tim really learned how to be a leader in the army something you don't just learn by sitting at a desk for 20 years," said Barbara.
The second ad features several Michels Construction employees who have worked with and have known Tim Michels nearly his entire life. "I don't consider Tim a politician right now, I consider him a businessman, and that's what we have to have to have, said Michels worker Rudy Schraufnagel," an Army Ranger himself. "If he tells you he's gonna do something he's gonna do it, not just promise you things and then, you know, get elected and walk away from it," added Michels worker Pobe Behnke.
Additionally, the "Real Life Experience" radio ad is a 60 second spot focusing on Tim's biography and its relevance to the issue's important to people today. "You know, the world has changed in twelve years. We need a Senator who'll make the right decisions to grow our economy, and keep our families safe," says Michels.
The ads are the first statewide buy for the campaign and can be viewed at www.michelsforsenate.com. They will air in the Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, La Crosse, Eau Claire and Wausau markets.

As your Representative in Washington, I will continue to fight so funds are made available allowing for retirement and disability payments to America's disabled veterans. Promises made to this nation's fighting men and women simply must be kept. I also pledge to stand for better pay for our servicemen and women, faster attention to their claims by the VA, and improved veterans health benefits -- including veterans health care facilities in Colorado, and across the country.

The widows of our boys who were killed in action in Afghanistan or Iraq will receive only $982 a month in benefits. That is an outrage and those benefits must be dramatically increased.
When one considers that the relatives of each victim of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack received millions in taxpayer dollars, the current policy for war widows is simply unconscionable.
I will also fight to make sure that we do more to keep our promise to take care of our disabled veterans
