A candidate running for governor of Wisconsin in the US has released a campaign video showing her breastfeeding her child.

In the video released this week, 38-year-old Democrat Kelda Roys outlines her views on the issue of BPA chemicals in plastic drinking products and canning materials, and her efforts to bring in legislation restricting their use.

As she does so, her husband can be seen holding their baby daughter off screen.

When she begins to cry, Ms Roys takes the four-month-old and feeds her, while continuing to talk about her policy priorities.

Ms Roys served in the state legislature for four years and is now running in the Democratic primary to face Republican Scott Walker.

The reaction to her video online was largely positive, with people taking to Twitter to compliment her on her multi-tasking.
