**************Ad can be viewed here: www.RecallTheRepublicans.com************** Today Democracy for America and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee released their next TV ad in Wisconsin, Recall Momentum. PCCC and DFA have spent over $500,000 on TV ads so far, and plan to keep running ads for weeks. The groups have also asked local members to volunteer on the recall, signing up thousands of shifts. The ad buy begins Tuesday, March 29 -- and first week's buy will be over $100,000 and will run on broadcast and cable in Green Bay and Milwaukee TV markets. The buys will be expanded based on online fundraising. Current ads can be viewed at RecallTheRepublicans.com where people are invited to take action locally or donate to keep the ad on TV nationally. "The Republican cuts in Wisconsin are having devastating effects on working families and DFA members are fighting back. DFA is on the ground and on the air in Wisconsin with more than 2,600 volunteers recruited for the recall campaign, more than half of the signatures gathered, and members nationwide supporting the new TV ad released today at: RecallTheRepublicans.com." -- Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. "This new TV ad captures the grassroots magic of the campaign to recall Republican senators. It also shows that folks in Wisconsin of all ages and political stripes are coming together to reject Republican policies that give millions to big corporations in tax cuts while forcing middle-class families, schools, and communities to pay the price." -- Stephanie Taylor, PCCC co-founder. The ads are sponsored by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee's "PCCC Recall Committee" and Democracy for America's "DFA Wisconsin" committee. Both groups will e-mail their members Tuesday to fundraise for the ad. DFA has over 1 million members nationally, and PCCC has over 700,000 members nationally -- both groups have about 25,000 members each in Wisconsin.
