MADISON, Wis. — The Latest on Wisconsin governor's race (all times local):
Gov. Scott Walker's launching a new television ad to promote his proposal to give college graduates who remain in Wisconsin $5,000 over five years.
The ad released Tuesday features Walker talking to students in a classroom, where he touts his plan to continue a University of Wisconsin System tuition freeze for four more years.
His new initiative calls for making $1,000 available to UW or technical school graduates who remain and work in the state. It would be available for up to five years.
Walker says it would be an incentive for Wisconsin college graduates to remain in the state.
The incentive would be available both to students who graduate with student loan debt or those who have none.
A new television ad from a group aligned with the Democratic Governors Association features a woman fighting breast cancer saying Gov. Scott Walker doesn't care about families like hers.
The ad unveiled Tuesday by A Stronger Wisconsin is part of a new seven-figure ad buy. The Democratic Governors Association has pledged to spend $3.8 million on the race.
The woman in the ad says if Walker takes away protections for people with pre-existing conditions she won't be able to afford live-saving treatments.
Walker has been a longtime proponent of repealing the federal health care law that provides protections for people with pre-existing conditions. But this year he called on the Legislature to pass a state law to guarantee coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
Walker spokesman Austin Altenburg calls the ad a "false attack" and says Democrat Tony Evers should denounce it.
