As noted at the Weekly Standard here, Gov. Walker has released his first ad—even though he has not announced.  It is a case for innovation and a resurgence of adult politics by a tested executive on the state level.  Does it work?  Walker’s nod at the Declaration of Independence will appeal to primary voters for sure, but has all the elements of a general appeal as well.

Walker has none of the Scott Brown appeal that leaps off the page.  Brown’s ads were classy and cutting edge.  Walker here, is deliberate and dividing regardless of party.  He’s here to play.  Walker should be considered a serious candidate.
