The Minnesota Republican Party has bought ad time to help Erik Paulsen's Congressional bid. The Republican Party has bought 110 thousand worth of ads at KARE and WCCO. The ads will run in the final week of the campaign. A GOP source said the ads will run on all four Twin Cities broadcast stations.
DFLer Ashwin Madia and I-P candidate David Dillon are also running for the open seat.
By the way, Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District is now #2 in TV ad spending in the Twin Cities. You can see the updated TV buys here.
Total ad spending has eclipsed $40 million.
Must be where those spots reserved for Bachmann ended up.
