Democrat Matt Entenza's campaign for governor is planning to run TV ads next week just days after Democrats are scheduled to endorse a candidate for governor. Entenza spokeswoman Bridget Cusick says they'll run the ads next week because the primary campaign officially begins at the end of the DFL convention. She says the ad will focus on the future of Minnesota. Cusick says they'll release the ad tomorrow.
No ad buy has been placed at least one of the local TV stations. KSTP-TV's public file shows that no candidate has bought time yet in 2010.
Entenza has indicated that he'll run in the August primary regardless of the outcome of the convention. He also suggested on MPR's Midday today that he'll announce his running mate in a few weeks.
