KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - A Wisconsin tribe has launched a series of television ads, asking Governor Scott Walker to approve a casino in Kenosha.

The $800 million proposed casino by the Menominee tribe is facing some criticism from the Forest County Potawatomi tribe, despite running a casino in Milwaukee.

The 30-second spot was revealed Friday, claiming the casino would boost the economy in Southeast Wisconsin and create thousands of jobs.
