Randy Bryce running ads outside of Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Democratic challenger to Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan is defending running television ads outside of Wisconsin.

Union ironworker Randy Bryce has an ad slated to run nationwide before Tuesday's State of the Union address, with a special emphasis on San Francisco and Seattle. The move is being blasted by Republicans who say it shows Bryce is detached from Wisconsin and more interested in attracting out-of-state donors.

Bryce spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said Tuesday that the ads are running outside of Wisconsin because Ryan is a national figure and "one of the three most powerful elected officials in the country."

Hitt says the campaign is spending $50,000 on the ad, with $35,000 on a nationwide buy on MSNBC, $13,000 in Madison and Milwaukee and just $1,600 in San Francisco and Seattle.
