The ad is part of an increasingly nasty back-and-forth between the candidates. Thompson released an ad earlier this week slamming Baldwin for voting against a bill honoring the victims of Sept. 11 (she'd voted against the bill because of other provisions), and Baldwin fired back with an ad accusing Thompson of running a health company that was slow to respond to help the attack's victims (others have disputed that).
The two had been largely focused on healthcare issues throughout the campaign — but the last week has been consumed by brutal attacks from each side on the other's patriotism. Polls show a very close race in the state.
