KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - The Menominee tribe is airing a television ad urging Gov. Scott Walker to approve an off-reservation casino in Kenosha.
The tribe unveiled the 30-second spot Friday. The Menominee say the ad was shot on location in Kenosha County and features unscripted interviews with area residents.
Tribal officials have promised the $800 million casino would create thousands of jobs and boost southeastern Wisconsin's economy.
The proposed casino won federal approval last month. Walker has final say.
Menominee Tribal Chairman Craig Corn says the ad is part of a campaign that includes Facebook, Twitter and a website.
The Forest County Potawatomi tribe strongly opposes the project. That tribe runs a casino in Milwaukee about 40 miles north of Kenosha and contends the Menominee's job creation claims are exaggerated.
