(CNN) – Wisconsin Republican Senate nominee Ron Johnson is drawing a sharp contrast between himself and his Democratic opponent - one's a lawyer and one isn't.
"There are 100 members of the U.S. Senate. Fifty-seven of them, including Russ Feingold, are lawyers," Johnson says in a new television ad. "That'd be fine if we had a lawsuit to settle. But we have an economy to fix."
In the 30-second spot, Johnson casts himself as a political outsider with the experience to get things done, and Feingold as a Washington insider who lacks the skills needed to fix the country's fiscal problems. It's the type of message being aired across the country in the lead-up to November's midterm elections.
The commercial is currently running statewide and shows Johnson standing in front of a white board as he touts his experience as an accountant and manufacturer.
A CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation poll released September 22 showed Johnson with a 51 to 45 point advantage over Feingold.
