1st WATCH: Pro-Ducey Group's New Ad Touting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's Endorsement (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

The pro-Doug Ducey independent expenditure group Conservative Leadership for Arizona is up with a new $68,000 ad buy touting the endorsement by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

CLA disclosed its expenditure on the ad in a filing with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office on Sunday.  The ad was posted to its YouTube site yesterday.  CLA chair Amanda Reeve states the ad will run on cable stations throughout the state, as well as online.

Although the ad uses some of the same controversially-obtained video of Ducey's campaign kick-off speech, CLA did not try to purchase video (or, audio) of Walker's May endorsement; instead choosing to use publicly-available video of Walker speaking generally about conservative candidates and flashing headlines about the Ducey endorsement.
