MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Republican Governors Association plans to launch a six-figure ad buy next week attacking Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke on the same day that thousands of emails from a convicted felon who worked for Gov. Scott Walker are released.

The ad is the first television salvo in the re-election race for Walker, a national conservative star who is also eyeing a 2016 presidential run.

RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said Thursday the ad will air statewide on cable and broadcast networks starting Wednesday and focus on Burke's time in Gov. Jim Doyle's administration.

Burke worked as Doyle's Department of Commerce secretary and is a former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive.

Also Wednesday emails from former Walker aide Kelly Rindfleisch are being released. She was convicted of doing campaign work on government time.
