Dems, GOP run competing billboards

Milwaukee-area commuters will be met with competing political billboards as Dem delegates converge on Oconomowoc this weekend.

The Dem Party put up a billboard earlier this week near the intersection of I-94 and Highway 16 in Pewaukee. The sign, which shows a timeline of Wisconsin's job rankings, targeted attendees at a Wednesday rally marking the anniversary of the governor's win in the recall election.

"Since Scott Walker took office, Wisconsin has dropped from 11th in job creation to 44th," the Dem billboard reads.



Republicans, meanwhile, put up their own billboard on westbound I-94 in Waukesha County -- east of the convention site -- reading, "A simple message to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin: Wisconsin is moving forward."

The GOP billboard features a photo of Gov. Walker and touts a budget surplus, increased jobs and a reduced tax burden under his administration.
