The campaign of Kathleen Falk, one of the Democratic challengers to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's seat in the upcoming recall election, has released its first television ad, indicating an effort to challenge Walker's dominance on the airwaves. The ad is part of a statewide cable buy, according to Falk press secretary Scot Ross.

Falk's main opponent in the primary on May 9 is Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, who threw his hat in the race less than two weeks ago. Barrett has yet to release an ad, and Walker and his allies have put in a combined $7 million in TV ad buys.
