Gary Comer paid for this full-page ad, which ran in today’s edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Undecided Voters of Wisconsin

My credential for writing and paying for this ad are that I created thousands of jobs in three cities in southwest Wisconsin during my tenure as leader of Dodgeville’s Lands’ End. I no longer am an owner of that company, but I founded it.

And I have the greatest respect for Wisconsin people who built that company with me. Together we put it on the list of the 100 Best Companies to work for in America. The values and work ethic and honest of Wisconsin people made Land’s End a success.

Knowing your character I understand the loyalties which conflict so many of you in the Presidential race. I have been a Republican and voted Republican most of my life. But in my opinion, this administration has high-jacked the Republican Party I knew and is taking Wisconsin and the United States in dangerous directions. If Bush is re-elected, you and your children and grandchildren and mine will pay dearly in their freedoms and opportunities long after his term of office expires. I believe that four more years of President Bush and the people who surround him is not in our Nation's best interest.

You could very well be the deciding factor in the electoral outcome of this election. Think carefully, vote your heart and head. I think of the debt that we will leave ourselves and everyone who follows, and I question the judgment that caused the deaths of 1100 U.S. friends and neighbors in a war that we didn't need to start.

  1. Lands' End is a corporate sponsor of Garrison Keillor's "Prairie Home Companion" radio show on NPR. His post-election show this week *killed*. My respect for Mr. Keillor continues to grow. And I'm going to make some purchases from Lands' End and send them a note to let them know how much their support of PHC is appreciated.
