Will Gov. Scott Walker say yes to the ad?

The College Republican National Committee has launched a multi-state ad campaign for a number of GOP candidates modeled after the TLC reality show, "Say Yes to the Dress," a show featuring brides-to-be looking for their wedding dresses.

The group also plans to target Wisconsin and the governor's race between Walker and his Democratic challenger Mary Burke, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

In the Florida version of the ad, for example, a young woman tries on a strapless "Rick Scott" gown and loves it.

"The Rick Scott is perfect!" she raves as she admires the dress. "Rick Scott is becoming a trusted brand. He has new ideas that don't break your budget."

But her frazzled, frizzy-haired mother wants her to buy the "Charlie Crist."

"I like the Charlie Crist," the mom says. "It's expensive and a little outdated, but I know best."

Crist, the former Republican turned Democrat, is challenging Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

The Walker campaign wasn't aware of a "Say Yes to Scott Walker" ad in the works.

"We didn't have any knowledge of it," Walker campaign spokeswoman Alleigh Marre said.
