Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker’s campaign is in jeopardy. The first television ad designed for him highlights his struggle with the public sector and it is the clash that made him known in the country.

Mr. Walker’s 60-second add which was made by PAC Unintimidated will begin broadcast on Tuesday. It is part of a buy worth $7 million that will run all through Feb. 1. The group that backs Walker’s bid for president has embarked on a $16 million spending strategy in Nevada, New Hampshire, South Carolina among other states. The ad has been released online just before its broadcast.

On the ad Mr. Walker makes aggressive approaches when trying to regain the ground he lost to other GOP rivals. The Fight and Win ad begins with protests that went on for weeks and grew to be large up to 100,000 people. The protesters had opposed Mr. Walker’s idea to end a collective bargain for many public workers. In the ad a narrator says “Time after time Scott Walker fights and wins.”

The advertisement also refers to the rate of unemployment drop by 3 percent since he took office to June. However, the ad doesn’t mention that Mr. Walker never achieve his campaign promise in 2010 and 2012 in the recall election. His signature campaign was that the state would have an additional 250,000 jobs by the end of 2014 and on the contrary only 129,000 jobs were added.
