MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Democratic Party is slamming Gov. Scott Walker's new video leading up to the launch of his re-election bid as a "revisionist campaign stunt."

In the minute-long video released Wednesday, Walker touts his record on creating jobs, lowering taxes, investing in schools and increasing health care accessibility.

Democratic Party spokeswoman Melanie Conklin says in a statement that if Walker were honest the video would show his refusal to accept federal Medicaid expansion money, cuts in funding to public schools and tax giveaways to the rich.

Walker rides his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the ad. Conklin says a more accurate video would have shown him "being jostled around on Wisconsin's crumbling roads."
