Candidates, special interest groups and political parties spend millions of dollars trying to influence who you'll vote for on Election Day.
One of the best, and most expensive, ways to do that is through TV advertising. MPR News took a look at how much the candidates have spent on TV advertising in the Twin Cities.
MPR political reporter Tom Scheck has been compiling the data on where those TV ads are being scheduled, and who's buying the time. He spoke with Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer about the information.
