Minnesota Democratic Senate Ads
Comedian-turned-Democratic candidate Al Franken starts airing new TV ads today in an effort to convince Minnesota voters that his senate campaign is no joke.
Franken's two ads will air in the Twin Cities and Duluth markets. The first 30-second message offers a mini-biography, and reasons for his campaign:
Franken's other 60-second ad is a light-hearted review of his life and career. It stars his fourth grade teacher Mrs. Molin, who mentions Franken's work as a comedian, author, and radio host, and that he's visited U.S. service members in Iraq and Afghanistan four times as part of USO tours:
Ciresi began airing ads last week that target President Bush and Coleman.
"I'm running for Senate because George Bush and Norm Coleman have let special interests run things in Washington too long."
Ciresi's second ad reviews his professional experience.
"I've taken on the tobacco, drug, and chemical companies, and won. ... ...that's exactly what I'll do for you in Washington."
Coleman has yet to announce plans to run TV ads.
