DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar's first batch of TV ads are focusing on her record during her first six years in the U.S. Senate. Klobuchar's campaign released the ads today that will start running tomorrow.
Klobuchar first ad focuses on her efforts to secure health care for a wounded veteran. The second ad showcases her work to save several car dealerships that were slated to close as a result of the near collapse of General Motors in 2008.
"I remain a Republican today, however, I will always support Sen. Klobuchar," Auto dealership owner Paul Walser said in the ad.
Klobuchar's campaign is obviously targeting independent and Republican voters with her ads. She's well ahead of state Rep. Kurt Bills, R-Rosemount in all independent polling.
Klobuchar doesn't mention Bills by name in either ad. It's unlikely that she'll target him unless the polls change dramatically over the next few weeks.
Bills has yet to buy any ad time at any of the Twin Cities TV stations.
