MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The only Democratic candidate for Wisconsin governor put out her first TV ad Wednesday, eight months before the election.

Mary Burke touted her background as a former state Commerce secretary and an executive with her family's Trek Bicycle business.

Burke also attacked Republican Governor Scott Walker's record on creating jobs, noting that unemployment is higher than when she served in the former Doyle administration.

Walker's campaign has not released a TV ad yet, but the Republican Governors Association has run a pair of spots on his behalf.
